Dear colleague 

I write today to share the news that Dorothy Hosein has stepped down as chief executive, following a period of ill health.  

Dorothy has written a message for staff colleagues, which you can read in full here. 

On behalf of the Board of EEAST, I would like to thank Dorothy for her leadership which enabled the Trust to deliver significant improvements during her time as chief executive.  

I am sure everyone will join me in sending Dorothy our warm wishes for the future.  

We appreciate that changes in leadership can be unsettling. The process to recruit a new permanent chief executive for the Trust is expected to start at the end of this month, with the appointment of a successful candidate expected in April 2021. In the meantime, Dr Tom Davis, our medical director and deputy chief executive, will continue as interim chief executive.
