We are pleased to announce that Donna Hayward-Sussex has been appointed to the role of Chief Operating Officer at KMPT.

Donna will join the Trust in March from her current role as Service Director at South London and Maudsley Foundation Trust.

Donna combines a strong management background with extensive experience in operationally leading and developing mental health services in the NHS and voluntary sector. Donna is a psychotherapist by background and is delighted to be joining the organisation and said:

“I have really enjoyed my contact with KMPT so far and have already met many committed and talented colleagues. I look forward to joining the organisation in the Spring and getting to grips with what I know will be some important opportunities to build on the substantial successes KMPT has delivered to date.”

Chief Executive, Helen Greatorex, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming Donna to a pivotal executive role. We particularly sought a COO who would be an accomplished contributor to system working. Donna evidenced a strong track record in that area in addition to her expertise in working with the third sector, another KMPT priority.”
