Board chairman Sue Smith said yesterday (Tuesday): "It is invaluable that, as we change and develop our services, our internal and external communications will continue to be directed and supported by Hywel.
"Neil's strong board-level skills in corporate governance, audit and internal control will provide strategic support to the trust's sustainable hospital programme."
The board is due to be disbanded in April 2009 as part of the hospital rescue plan that is expected to be endorsed by Cambridgeshire Primary Care Trust next month.
