Shelly has been interim chief executive of ACT for the past 12 months following the departure of Stephen Davies who left the charity following almost seven years as chief executive and 20 years service to the NHS.

Shelly, who in the past 12 months at ACT has helped the charity undergo a substantial restructure and launch an innovative new strategy to enable patients to give back to the hospital, has spent 18 years in the IT sector at executive and board level. Prior to her interim role at ACT she worked in the hospital for four years supporting organisational development.

Shelly said: “I’m delighted to continue in the role as chief executive of ACT. Stephen did a great job in setting the foundations of the charity in place and preparing for the future and I hope to do justice to all of his hard work. I’m really looking forward to further strengthening our relationships with the hospital  - working closely with all of our supporters, colleagues and patients to make even more of a difference.”

 

Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust (ACT) is the independent registered charity for Cambridge University Hospitals (including Addenbrooke's Hospital and the Rosie Hospital).
