New medical director James Marsh at Epsom and St Helier hospitals
The Epsom and St Helier trust has appointed a new joint medical director.
Dr James Marsh has been at the trust for more than 10 years, joining as a renal consultant in 2003 and working his way up to clinical director for renal services.
He will now join Dr Ruth Charlton, a consultant paediatrician, as medical director.
They will be responsible for providing leadership and support to 240 consultants and 400 doctors, oversee medical education and training, research and development, and clinical governance.
Chief executive, Matthew Hopkins, said: "I am delighted to welcome James to his new post. He is a highly skilled doctor, and a well-respected colleague.
"I am confident that he will bring the same talent and commitment to this role that he has shown throughout his time with our hospitals.”
Dr Marsh, who lives in Weybridge, said: “This is a very exciting opportunity, and I am very pleased to have been appointed.
"It’s a great time of change and challenge for our hospitals, but ultimately, my post is about helping the large team of clinical staff at Epsom, Sutton and St Helier hospitals deliver the very best of care to our patients.”
Dr Marsh replaces Dr Martin Stockwell who has moved across to the post of responsible officer - associate medical director.
