Monitor appoints Executive Director of Provider Sustainability

Adam Sewell-Jones, the Deputy Chief Executive of Basildon Hospital, will join the health sector regulator as the first head of a team dedicated to ensuring NHS foundation trusts have effective support as they seek to improve their performance.


The Provider Sustainability Directorate aims to develop a pool of expertise to support foundation trusts. This includes bringing in-house much of the work currently done for the regulator by external suppliers in the fields of provider sustainability and solutions development (also known as contingency planning).

At Basildon, Mr Sewell-Jones was instrumental in turning around a trust which had been subject to regulatory action for a number of years as part of the special measures programme. Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was removed from special measures in June 2014, following a successful inspection by the independent Care Quality Commission.

Previously, Mr Sewell-Jones worked for University College London Hospitals and Redbridge Healthcare NHS Trust. He was part of the NHS Top Leaders Programme 2010.
