Ms Stalley-Green, who was formerly deputy chief executive and chief nursing officer for Birmingham and Solihull Integrated Care Board (ICB) from when it was created in 2022, first qualified as a nurse in 2002 and has worked in the NHS for more than two decades.

In that time, she has worked in accident and emergency, prisons, acute services, community and in commissioning.

More latterly, at the ICB, Ms Stalley-Green has led on work related to care quality, patient experience, workforce and infrastructure, as well as on anti-racism in professional practice.

Ms Stalley-Green said she was excited to begin her new role, and added: “I’m proud to have grown my career in Birmingham and Solihull and I know I’m joining an organisation that has great things going for it and I’m looking forward to working more closely with patients and service users.

“I’d like to thank colleagues across the system and at the integrated care board for all of their support. It’s been great to be part of establishing a new organisation and a pleasure to lead the system’s nursing community.

“I hope to build on this and will play an active role in our system’s nursing community from within the trust.”

She replaces Steve Forsyth, who took on the role in an interim capacity. He will join Rotherham, Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust as chief nurse in April.
