Health board appoints new chief executive

Professor Trevor Purt has become the new chief executive of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. 
He is currently chief executive of Hywel Dda University Health Board, a post he has held since 2009. 
He has over 11 years experience as an NHS chief executive, with earlier equivalent experience within the private sector. 
The details of when Prof Purt will take up his new post are being worked through. In the interim Geoff Lang will continue as acting chief executive.
Prof Purt's appointment follows an extensive recruitment and selection exercise, which attracted candidates from across the globe. 
The BCUHB says work will now progress on the appointment of a new director of finance, for which interviews are planned in early May.

Llyr Gruffydd, Plaid Cymru North Wales AM, said of Prod Purt's appointment: “I’m pleased a decision has been made and I hope Mr Purt brings some stability to the top of Betsi Cadwaladr.

"I look forward to forming a good working relationship with him over the coming months. I look forward to meeting with him as soon as possible and I will continue to speak up for constituents’ concerns about the Welsh health service and how we can improve it.”
