He has also held the role at Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust and Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust.
Chair of the Trust, Nigel Beverley said: “It was an extremely competitive recruitment process, and I am delighted that the Trust is attracting so much talent.
“Matthew is an experienced CEO who I know will use his significant knowledge and leadership skills to guide the organisation forward as we continue to improve the care we are providing to our population.”
