Haslemere resident John Denning has been appointed to the Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Trust Board for a four year term from 1st October 2008 to 30th September 2012.
Chairman Alan Howarth said:
"I am very pleased to welcome John to the Board of Directors. As we are going through the process to become an NHS Foundation Trust, we were keen to recruit someone with extensive commercial experience who could apply that to an NHS setting.
"John has many years experience of working with large organisations and is keen to apply that knowledge in his role as an NHS Non-executive director."
John is a Chartered Surveyor and is the former MD of Bass Leisure Retail, responsible for the largest managed pub estate in the country. He has previously held senior management position with McDonalds Restaurants, Imperial Group and Forte, and Non-executive directorships at Fitness First PLC and SFI plc. He now runs a licensed retailing consultancy business, and sits as a magistrate on the North East Hampshire bench.
Commenting on his new role John Denning said:
"I have a great deal of commercial experience which, given the increasingly competitive nature of the NHS, will benefit such a large organisation. I am also keen to utilise my knowledge of customer service in this role."
This appointment carries a remuneration of £6,005 per annum and has been made in accordance with the OCPA Code of Practice. All non-executive appointments are made on merit and political activity plays no part in the selection process. However, in accordance with the original Nolan recommendations, there is a requirement for appointees political activity (if any declared) to be made public. John has not declared any political activity or ministerial appointments.
