ELFT has two new Deputy Chief Executives to replace Jonathan Warren who left the Trust last week.
Chief Finance Officer Steven Course will be Deputy CEO for Bedfordshire and Luton while Chief Operations Officer Paul Calaminus will hold the same role for London.
Steven first joined ELFT in 2006 before leaving after two years to gain acute sector experience Steven re-joined the Trust in 2009 as Deputy Finance Director and became Chief Finance Officer in 2015.
Paul only joined ELFT in March this year from Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust where he was Chief Operating Officer.
Chief executive Navina Evans said: ‘Jonathan has left some very big boots to fill, but I have every confidence that Steven and Paul will do just that. They both contributed a great deal to the Trust and in these roles have much more to give.’
Navina said splitting the role would allow Paul and Steven to engage with partners and stakeholders, reflecting the growing need for ELFT to take an active role in both health systems.
Steven and Paul will take up their new positions immediately and will continue with their existing portfolios.
