CEO Thea Stein to take up new role at Nuffield Trust think tank
A message from Brodie Clark CBE, Chair of LCH
Today I am sharing the news that our Chief Executive, Thea Stein, has been selected as the next Chief Executive of the Nuffield Trust independent health think tank. It is an independent organisation with a remit on research and policy analysis and a clear focus on health and social care across the UK. It is a key contributor to the health and care agenda; it initiates debate, and it considers forward direction. It is a role in which Thea will make a significant contribution with her leadership, her experience and her credibility - her selection is a true reflection on her abilities.
Thea has been Chief Executive at Leeds Community Healthcare Trust for nine years and her contribution over many difficult and challenging times has been unwavering and of the highest value. Equally, her contribution to the city-wide and West Yorkshire health and welfare developments have been highly positive. She will be a great loss on both counts.
Her care and support of staff across the organisation is a major hallmark of her tenure at LCH. She has led this organisation with care and compassion.
The process of recruiting her successor will take place over the summer period and it is likely that Thea will remain in post at LCH till late summer.
In the meantime, we offer our congratulations and support as she takes on this new and important role.
Brodie Clark CBE
