01 March 2024 - Roy Clarke will join King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in March as Chief Financial Officer

Roy joins the Trust on secondment for a year from Norfolk & Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, where he has been Chief Financial Officer since April 2020. His appointment at the Trust has been made with input and support from NHS England.

Prior to joining the team at Norfolk and Norwich, Roy held a number of Board positions within the NHS, including as Chief Financial Officer at Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Roy is a Chartered Management Accountant, and is also a Trustee at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. He has also worked as an Executive Reviewer for the Care Quality Commission.

Roy will join King’s on secondment as Chief Financial Officer on 11 March. He will take over from Arthur Vaughan, Acting Chief Financial Officer at the Trust, who will return to his substantive Deputy Chief Financial Officer role.

Professor Clive Kay, Chief Executive at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, welcomed Roy’s appointment. He said:

“I am confident that Roy will be an excellent addition to the Trust Board here at King’s. We are working at pace to improve our financial position, and Roy will play a crucial role in helping ensure we deliver a sustainable financial position, whilst also continuing to provide high quality services for patients and the communities we serve.”

Roy said:

“It is a real privilege to be joining King’s, one of the country’s biggest and busiest Trusts. The Trust and its talented, dedicated staff and volunteers serve large and diverse communities, and I am very much looking forward to working alongside them and our partners to help deliver financial sustainability for King’s, and the best possible care to our patients”.
