Dr Ross White is stepping down from his role as CEO of Mildmay, to take on another Chief Executive role at a charity in Surrey. Ross will be a familiar face to many of our supporters and volunteers as he has headed the charity for nine years, work which has included overseeing our work in East Africa. He has seen the opening of a brand new Mildmay hospital, officially opened by HRH Prince Harry in 2015 and marked the organisations 150th year in 2016. In 2017 Mildmay achieved Outstanding, the highest rating possible, in their Care Quality Commission inspection (CQC is the independent regulator of health and social care in England).
Carol Stone, who has been a trustee of Mildmay for the past two years and has dedicated almost four decades of her life to the health-care sector, will step into the interim CEO role until a permanent appointment is made.
Dr White said “ This been a very hard decision to make, I feel an enormous personal attachment to Mildmay and a huge sense of pride in all we have achieved as a team. I believe however that I have one last big role to take on and although I am sad to be saying goodbye to my Mildmay family I feel confident that they will continue to go from strength to strength. I am indebted to our wonderful board of dedicated trustees, our exceptional staff, volunteers and supporters and thank them for their unceasing commitment which has enabled Mildmay to achieve so much. “
