Patrick Brooke has stepped down from his role as Chair of the Solihull Together Board. This coincides with his departure from Solihull CCG, as their Accountable Officer, and developments across Birmingham and Solihull CCGs to appoint an interim Chief Executive Officer to cover all three organisations.
Patrick explains: “This is a decision of mixed emotion for me. As we enter a transitional period in commissioning with Birmingham, I believe it is the right time for me to hand on the baton of leadership to someone new. I shall be sad to leave behind many friends and colleagues in Solihull but at the same time excited to have the opportunity to take on new challenges and opportunities.
I am leaving Solihull in the knowledge that together we have placed it on a stronger platform from which it can deliver a long term sustainable model of quality healthcare for all its citizens. There is much to celebrate and I am immensely proud of all that we have achieved.”
Nick Page, Chief Executive of Solihull Council, is taking over as Chair of the Solihull Together Board with immediate effect.
