Medway NHS Foundation Trust’s Chief Executive Lesley Dwyer has been named by the Health Service Journal as one of the top 50 NHS chief executives in the country. 

The judging panel of industry experts took account of three main criteria in making their decision: 

  • The personal example set by the chief executive
  • The performance of the organisation they lead, given the circumstances it is in
  • The contribution the chief executive has made to the wider health and social care system

Lesley Dwyer was appointed as the Chief Executive in May 2015 and is a highly experienced executive manager with more than 30 years’ experience across the public health system. Prior to taking up the role as Chief Executive, Lesley held senior executive roles in government and health services within the Australian Health System.

“I am absolutely delighted that Lesley has been named one of the HSJ’s top 50 chief executives.
