THE chief executive of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT) has quit to take up a new post in Manchester.
Dr Attila Vegh, who joined CPFT in October 2011, will leave in August to become chief executive of University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust.
During his time at CPFT, Dr Vegh oversaw a huge turnaround programme. The Care Quality Commission had raised serious concerns about the quality of care at the trust, but a raft of measures overseen by Dr Vegh allowed changes to ward environments, care planning and patient care.
In just over a year, the trust was given a clean bill of health by the CQC.
Dr Vegh said: “This is not a decision I have taken lightly. I was approached by the University Hospital of South Manchester recently to see if I was interested in taking up the position of chief executive. Having talked to the team up there, this has turned out to be an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.

“I am incredibly proud of what we have all achieved since I have been here. The trust is almost unrecognisable from the organisation I joined in 2011 and that is down to the incredible staff I have been working with.”
Director of people and business development Keith Spencer will take over as interim chief executive.
