Bas Sadiq has been appointed as the new Chief Executive at Homerton Healthcare and Place-based Leader for City & Hackney Health and Care Partnership.

Bas, who has been the Deputy Chief Executive at the Trust for the past 10 months, steps up to the CEO role replacing Louise Ashley who is retiring.

An experienced director, with 20 years in the NHS, Bas started her career as an outpatient receptionist in 2004 before taking up her first management post in 2006.

Before joining Homerton, she was the Chief Improvement and Strategy Officer at Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust. Prior to that Bas has held senior operational roles in both acute and community trusts.

She said: “I am delighted to be taking on the CEO’s role at Homerton Healthcare and leading the development of partnerships and alliances in City & Hackney.

“Having grown up in Haringey and worked in every acute trust in north east London, my roots run deep in this part of the capital. This connection has instilled in me a profound appreciation for the communities we serve. I am very proud and excited to be taking up this role and look forward to continuing our work with colleagues in the local authorities and third sector in providing the very best of health for local people.”

Trust Chair Sir John Gieve said: “We are delighted that Bas is our new CEO and Place-based Leader. In her interviews, Bas impressed everyone with her strong and compassionate leadership style and her positive vision for Homerton Healthcare, for improving population health and reducing inequalities in City and Hackney, and for playing a positive and collaborative role in north east London more widely.  

“In our very diverse organisation and area, her journey from outpatient receptionist in Whipps Cross Hospital to CEO should be an inspiration to all our staff and to anyone considering a career in the NHS.”
