Information Requested:

I am writing to request, under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the following: 

Please provide the number of Chief Executive Officers your Trust has had since 2010. 

Please provide the shortest amount of time a Chief Executive Officer has served at your Trust since 2010 (or since you started recording this). 

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12 of the FOI Act, please provide advice and assistance, under the Section 16 obligations of the Act, as to how I can refine my request. 
I request that the information be sent to me digitally and within the legal timeframe for requests.


Information provided for the answer:

Thank you for your request dated 4th October 2023. 


There have been three Chief Executive Officers in PHW since 2010. The first was in post from September 2009 until November 2013, the second was an Interim Chief Executive from November 2013 to May 2014, and the third from June 2014 to date. 


The interim Chief Executive was in post for a period of 6 months. This was a temporary arrangement until the newly appointed Chief Executive was in post. Aside from the interim Chief Executive, the shortest amount of time a Chief Executive served PHW since 2010 was just over 4 years.
