I am writing to all staff across both Trusts to let you know that Peter Molyneux was appointed Interim Chair of BEH and C&I from 1 November, following Pippa Aitken stepping down as Interim Joint Chair and as Deputy Chair and Non-Executive Director at C&I. I would like to thank Pippa for all that she has done at C&I and during her time as Interim Joint Chair. She will be much missed.
I also want to welcome Peter to our Partnership. Since April 2018, Peter has been Chair of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and will remain Chair there, as well as taking up the role here. He is a Board member of the Mental Health Network and the England Liaison for the International Initiative for Mental Health Leadership.
Peter is the founder of Common Cause Consulting, a research and design consultancy that brings organisations together to promote social, economic and emotional well-being. He has written numerous reports and delivered programmes that changed the narrative around mental health, build community resilience and create cultures of learning across organisational boundaries. He is a Visiting Fellow at the John Madejski Centre for Reputation Management at Henley Business School (University of Reading) and Co-Chair of the Health and Care LGBTQ+ Leaders’ Network.
Peter will be getting out to see services and meet staff as much as possible over the coming weeks and I am sure that you will all join me in welcoming him to our Partnership.
With my best wishes,
Jinjer Kandola MBE
