Appointment of new Deputy Chief Executive at Salford Royal

Salford Royal is delighted to announce that Elaine Inglesby-Burke has been appointed as the Trust’s Deputy Chief Executive.


Elaine has taken on the new role with immediate effect. She continues in her role as Executive Director of Nursing and retains responsibility for Governance, Patient Safety, Quality Improvement and the Division of Salford Healthcare.


Elaine qualified as a registered nurse in 1980 at Warrington District General Hospital, specialising in critical care and general medicine. She has held Executive Nurse Director positions since 1996, joining Salford Royal as its Director of Nursing in 2004.


Salford Royal’s Chief Executive Sir David Dalton said he was extremely pleased to appoint Elaine as the Trust’s new Deputy Chief Executive.


He said: “Elaine is a Florence Nightingale leadership scholar and has a strong track record in professional nursing and operational management.


“A significant figure within the NHS’ drive to improve patient safety and reduce harm, Elaine was one of a number of senior nurses across the country to form Safe and Sound – the Safe Staffing Alliance to demand minimum registered nurse staffing levels.


“She was also the only nurse selected to be part of an international panel of experts for Professor Don Berwick’s National Advisory Group on the Safety of Patients in England, established at the request of Prime Minister David Cameron following the Francis Report into the crisis at Mid-Staffordshire Hospital. She is also a member of David Cameron’s Nursing and Care Quality Forum; the workstream lead for ‘time to care’ to ensure nurses have enough time to care for their patients.”
