Anthony ‘Mac’ McKeever has been appointed Chief Executive Officer designate for the Mid and South Essex Integrated Care Board.

Mac has been appointed to the role after a robust recruitment and assessment process led by NHS England and NHS Improvement. The process included stakeholder panels featuring members from partner organisations, staff, and local community representatives.

The Health Bill currently going through Parliament passed its Second Reading in the House of Commons, and our Chief Executive Officer appointment has taken place now in order for us to prepare for the proposed changes ahead. The Integrated Care Board will be the statutory NHS body within our health and care system.

Mac’s experience and knowledge has supported us to confront the unique challenges of the pandemic and strengthen our collaboration with colleagues across mid and south Essex over the past 18 months. I believe that his commitment to improving things for the benefit of the population we serve shines through in everything he does.

I look forward to continuing working with him and colleagues across our system as we move closer to formalising the Mid and South Essex Integrated Care System in April 2022.
