Marie Gabriel CBE has been praised for building a culture of compassion and continuous improvement after her last day as Chair of the Trust.

Marie officially left as Chair this week (April 1, 2020) to start her new role as Independent Chair of the emerging north east London Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP), part of the East London Health and Care Partnership.

Non-Executive Director Eileen Taylor is now Interim Chair while the Governors are continuing with the process for appointing a permanent replacement.

“Marie’s contribution in shaping a CQC outstanding-rated Trust where staff demonstrate its values day in, day out is recognised and respected by everyone across ELFT including myself,” said Eileen.

“She has helped build a culture of compassion and continuous improvement. It has been a pleasure to work alongside her and I have benefitted personally from having Marie being my mentor.

“I feel a tremendous sense of pride and responsibility in being appointed Interim Chair while the process of finding a permanent replacement for Marie is completed.”
