Addenbrooke’s chief executive steps down
THE chief executive of Addenbrooke’s Hospital has resigned.
Dr Gareth Goodier will leave the hospital in June for Australia after nearly six years in the job.
He will become chief executive of Melbourne Health, a major health provider in Victoria, Australia.
“I’ve been here for six years and always said I’d return to Australia because that’s where my children live,” he said.
“The right job came up and I couldn’t miss the opportunity to return to my family and life-long friends in Australia.”

He added: “I will of course be sad to leave Cambridge. Working at Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) has been the pinnacle of my career and I will forever be proud to be associated with such a great place.”
