Keith Griffiths, Director of Finance at University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT), will be leaving the Trust later this year to take up a new role in the North West.
Aaron Cummins, Chief Executive, University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT), said: “I can confirm that Keith Griffiths, Director Finance at UHMBT, has resigned from his post to take up the Director of Finance and Resources role with Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership.
“On behalf of the Trust, I would like to thank him for his support and leadership since joining the trust in April 2018. Amongst other responsibilities, Keith has led our cost improvement programme which last year (2019/20), saved an impressive £22m thanks to his direction and the hard work of teams across the Trust. This not only met our nationally agreed financial control totals but also reduced our deficit from £70m in 2018/19 to £41m in 2019/20.
“We will be waving goodbye to Keith at the end of October 2020, and will now start the process of recruiting a new Director of Finance.
“I’m sure all our colleagues across the Trust would join me in wishing Keith and his family all the best for the future.”
