NHS Property Services chair to step down

  • 17th April 2024

NHS Property Services’ (NHSPS) chairman, Jane Hamilton, is to step down following the end of her three-year term.

Having joined the board in March 2021, she has decided that, after 15 years working in the UK, now is the right time to return to her native Australia to be with her family.

She has overseen the successful transformation of the organisation and with the end of her original three-year term as chairman, she now feels this is the right time to allow someone new to oversee the next exciting chapter for NHSPS.

“When I reflect on the last three years at NHSPS, I am filled with real pride in what we have achieved,” she said.

“We have truly transformed the organisation, continuing to embed a culture that puts the customer at the heart of everything we do.

“A year on from that transformation programme, we now have an organisation that is ready and confident of taking the next exciting step in its journey, with the brilliant expertise of its people and a newly developed five-year business strategy.

“I know that I will be leaving behind a strong team in place with an exciting future, which I will continue to watch from afar.”

Ellie Mason, shareholder representative director on the board for the Department of Health and Social Care, added: “I would like to thank Jane for the last three years of help and support she has brought to NHSPS.

“She has shown true passion and commitment to everything we are trying to achieve.”

And Martin Steele, chief executive, said: “Jane has guided the business through a period of extraordinary change with a fundamental pivot to a customer-centric operating model, a transformational organisational redesign, and the creation of a new business strategy.

“Her 30 years of experience in property and the government sector have also helped ensure focus on sustaining high levels of operational performance.”

Hamilton will remain in post until the end of July 2024 while the recruitment for her replacement takes place.
