Jan Ross, former Director of Operations and Strategy and Deputy Chief Executive at The Walton Centre, has been appointed as the Trust’s new Chief Executive. Jan, who has 30 years’ experience working in the NHS, joined The Walton Centre in November 2018. A nurse by background, she has also spent time at Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust, Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust.
She said, “I am delighted to be taking on the leadership of The Walton Centre, already an outstanding trust with a long history of providing highly specialised care. I want to take this further – we should capitalise on our great potential, and strive to be the very best. The Walton Centre should be synonymous with fantastic clinical standards, new and exciting research that drives forward healthcare, and a culture that facilitates the professional development and wellbeing of our staff. I know our staff want this as much as I do, and I am really excited to work together to achieve it.”
Janet Rosser, Trust Chair said: “The Walton Centre staff will know what an immense impact Jan has had on our organisation since she started at the Trust, and the great leadership she has provided throughout the coronavirus pandemic. I am confident she will continue to lead our hospital with passion and dedication for the benefit of all our patients and their families, and our staff.”
