A new medical director has been appointed to the board at Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Dr Kanchan Rege is a Consultant Haematologist for the Trust, and the Clinical Director of the Cancer and Diagnostics directorate. She will take up her new position on the Board of Directors on 1 August 2015 and will oversee the management of the Trust’s consultant body as well as doctors in training. She will continue to see patients in her clinic at Peterborough City Hospital where she will work in her consultant role for one day per week.

It is an honour to be taking over this role from John (Randall, former medical director) and I am looking forward to making a positive contribution to the Trust at a much wider level

Dr Rege replaces current Medical Director John Randall, who is stepping down from the role to take up a national position with the National Clinical Assessment Service. Mr Randall will, however, continue with his part-time role as a consultant working in the infertility and gynaecological clinics at Peterborough City Hospital.

Stephen Graves, Chief Executive of Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said: “On behalf of the Trust board, I would like to congratulate Dr Rege on her appointment. She was selected following a rigorous recruitment process and we look forward to working with her. I would also like to thank John Randall for his 10 years’ service to the Trust as Medical Director. We wish him well in his future role.”

Dr Rege, who is married with three children aged between 16 and 21, said: “It is an honour to be taking over this role from John and I am looking forward to making a positive contribution to the Trust at a much wider level.”
