THE chief executive of West London NHS Trust, Carolyn Regan, was made a CBE in the King’s Birthday Honours. 

Under her leadership since 2015, the trust has been rated Outstanding in many areas by the Care Quality Commission and Good overall as a trust. 

She is a passionate champion for tackling health inequalities and giving a voice to under-represented parts of the community.

The latest example of this is the NW London refugee recruitment programme which offers work in the NHS for refugees arriving in the UK.
