The chief executive of the Royal Free Trust, Sir David Sloman, is set to leave his role in the new year.

After nearly a decade at the trust, he will be taking up his new job as NHS regional director for London.

During his tenure, Sir David led the Royal Free to foundation status in 2012, and took on the Barnet and Chase Farm Hospitals in 2014.

He received a knighthood for his work in December 2016, in recognition for almost 20 years as a chief executive in north London. He joined the Royal Free in 2009.

Sir David said: “I have loved every minute of my time at the Royal Free London where I have been fortunate to have worked alongside some of the very best staff in the NHS – their devotion and commitment to improving the lives of patients is unrivalled.
