Four new non-executive directors have been appointed to the NHS Commissioning Board, completing its team of seven.
The four new names represent expertise in the voluntary sector, legal services, social work and finance.
The Commissioning Board Authority’s previously announced plan to appoint a leading doctor in one of these roles has been abandoned.
The new non-executive directors are:
• Lord Victor Adebowale (pictured), Chief Executive of the mental health and rehabilitation charity Turning Point.
• Margaret Casely-Hayford, Director of Legal Services and Company Secretary at John Lewis.
• Dame Moira Gibb, Chair of the Social Work Reform Board and former Chief Executive of the London Borough of Camden.
• Naguib Kheraj, Vice Chairman of Barclays Bank.
The four will join the CBA from 1 July, completing the non-executive director team together with CBA Chair Malcolm Grant, Provost of University College London; Ciarane Devane, Chief Executive of Macmillan Cancer Support; and Ed Smith, former Strategy Chair of PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Malcolm Grant said: “These are appointments of the highest quality, and they bring to the NHS a wealth of experience and expertise from a wide range of backgrounds.
“I am pleased that we now have a full group of non-executive directors, with complementary strengths and skills, to work alongside the executive team led by Sir David Nicholson.”
