The Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT) has announced the departure of its chief executive Antek Lejk.

Mr Lejk, who took up the post last year, will take up a secondment with the East London NHS Foundation Trust, where he will be supporting the development of an integrated care system.

“I believe that the trust is at a key stage of its journey to improve the quality of its services,” said Mr Lejk in a statement this week.

“While I fully support the trust on that journey, it is my belief that it will benefit from a new vision and leadership and I fully support it on that journey.”

The NSFT has since confirmed it will be announcing its interim chief executive arrangements in due course.

Marie Gabriel, chairman of the NSFT, said: “This is a great opportunity that draws on Antek’s proven experience of, and indeed success with, system working.

“After careful consideration, and given that Antek has managed to bring NSFT to a point where the green shoots of improvement are starting to show, he has decided to accept this offer.”

She added: “I want to take this opportunity to thank Antek for his hard work and dedication over what I know has been a challenging few months.

“We will be building upon the foundations he has laid to further improve the quality of services at the trust to a standard that service users can and should expect.”
