Marie Gabriel CBE has been appointed as Chair of Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT).

Marie, who replaces acting NSFT Chair Tim Newcomb, will continue in her role as Chair of East London NHS Foundation Trust (ELFT), which is rated outstanding by the CQC.

The appointment is part of a broadened package of support, drawing on the experience and expertise from ELFT, to make sustainable quality improvements for patients, service users and their families.

ELFT has been ‘buddying’ with NSFT - which provides mental health and learning disability services across Norfolk and Suffolk - since it was placed into special measures for the second time in 2017.
