The Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust has appointed Dominic Hardy to the role of Chief Operating Officer.
Dominic will join the Trust in the late autumn from NHS England and Improvement where he has held the position of Director of Primary Care and System Transformation.
CEO Steve McManus said:
“I am delighted to announce that following an extensive search and robust recruitment process we have appointed Dominic Hardy to the role of Chief Operating Officer (COO) and look forward to him joining the Trust Board later this year. He will also play a key role in our Integrated Care Partnership (ICP) working with colleagues right across Berkshire.
“Dominic will take over from Mary Sherry who has been an outstanding COO and much valued member of the Board, providing sound operational management and guidance for the past five years. Mary is remaining with us until late October so there will be opportunity to thank her for her service and wish her well for the future.”
On appointment Dominic said:
“The Royal Berkshire NHS FT is my local hospital Trust and this is a fantastic opportunity to work together with other colleagues in Berkshire to provide outstanding care for our community.”
Dominic’s previous roles include Director of Commissioning Operations for Wessex and as Regional Assurance and Delivery Director. Prior to that, he worked in the South of England and South Central SHA working with colleagues across the South to establish and then lead the new commissioning system.
Before moving to the NHS, Dominic worked in central government in a range of roles including working alongside Professor Lord Ara Darzi as project director for the NHS Next Stage Review at the Department of Health and Social Care, Principal Private Secretary to John Reid and Patricia Hewitt and policy advisor to Tony Blair. He also worked at the management consultancy Pricewaterhouse Coopers.
