Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust is to appoint Dr Nick Broughton to become its new chief executive when Stuart Bell CBE retires from the role after having completed 37 years' NHS service.

Dr Broughton joins Oxford Health from Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust where, as chief executive, he has led a senior team to take the trust’s CQC rating from ‘Requires Improvement’ when he joined in November 2017 to ‘Good’ in January 2020.


I am passionate about research and partnership working, so am keen to build upon the strong links with academic institutions that Oxford Health has already established. I have also been impressed with the progress made through the Oxford Healthcare Improvement programme, as I believe Quality Improvement is key to driving lasting change that benefits both patients and staff.Dr Nick Broughton
