A medical director embarked on her work at Oxford University Hospitals recently.

Professor Meghana Pandit is the new medical director and she has come back to Oxford after being employed elsewhere. New letterheads may be needed when organisations update their top personnel. Professor Pandit told the Oxford Mail:

“I have very happy memories of my time in Oxford and I am really looking forward to using the skills and experience which I have gained during my career to date in my new role as medical director.”

Professor Pandit explained that Oxford University Hospitals has a wide range of strengths. In particular, she stressed the quality of the specialist treatment available. She also mentioned the importance of research and local services. Her commitment to teamwork was underlined.

The chief executive for Oxford University Hospitals, Dr. Bruno Holthof, clarified that Professor Pandit will be an authentic asset to the board of the trust. He paid tribute to her rich experience in leadership roles relevant to medicine. In addition, he mentioned that Professor Pandit has a strong management background.

Oxford University Hospitals is responsible for the Churchill Hospital. It also controls the John Radcliffe Hospital. Professor Pandit trained at both these healthcare centres. Since then, she has worked within the University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust as a chief medical officer and as a deputy chief executive.
