Dr Pete Turkington will be taking up a new post as Executive Managing Director at Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s Aintree Hospital site.
Dr Turkington started work at Salford Royal in 2003, taking up a post in respiratory medicine.
He has previously worked as a chair of division at the organisation and became chief officer in June 2019, alongside his medical director duties and his role as a Consultant Respiratory Physician.
Dr Turkington will leave the NCA in the Spring and while he said he is very much looking forward to his new venture in Liverpool, he will be sad to leave the NCA behind adding: “I’ve lived and breathed Salford for such a significant part of my career.”
