New Chair welcomed to Nottingham CityCare

We are delighted to welcome Sherry Malik as Chair of Nottingham CityCare; the city’s largest NHS provider of community healthcare rated as ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Sherry Malik is passionate about health, social care, and social justice. She has over 30 years of experience of leading and managing a diverse portfolio in large complex, political settings in public (local and central Government and the NHS), voluntary and commercial settings, both in executive and non-executive roles.

She is currently a non-executive Director at Dimensions UK, Trustee at the Internet Watch Foundation and at Social Work Awards. She is also a Staff College Associate, providing coaching and mentoring, delivering workshops on a wide range of leadership topics.

Her signature strength is in enabling change and transformation, working with individuals, organisations, boards, and partnerships. Sherry's previous roles include Director of Children’s Services at NSPCC, Director of Children and Adult Services at London Borough of Hounslow, Chair of Essex Cares, and Vice Chair of Barnet and Chase Farm Hospitals Trust. 

Newly appointed Chair Sherry Malik said:

“I am both delighted and so very proud of becoming the new Chair of Nottingham CityCare and look forward to making a difference for the people of Nottingham.

Nottingham CityCare plays a vital role in keeping people of all ages well in the community and where they live. Nottingham’s high levels of deprivation and diversity means that we must grasp every available opportunity to work with partner organisations to benefit Nottingham’s people and I am confident we will continue to rise to this undertaking.

I have already had the privilege of meeting CityCare staff in my new role as Chair and I have been hugely impressed by the dedication, creativity, and commitment to making a difference for individuals and communities. Many told me ‘I love my job’ which is testament to the Nottingham CityCare and its ‘Outstanding’ track record.

In my role as Chair, I will listen to the experience of both staff and patients and will use this to inform our discussion and decision making at Board and with partners. CityCare's Three-Year Strategy 2022-25 is ambitious, but I have no doubt that if each of us play our part to deliver it, we will see a palpable difference in the lives of our communities. "

Chief Executive Lou Bainbridge said:

“On behalf of the Board and all our staff I would like to congratulate and welcome Sherry Malik to her new role as Chair of Nottingham CityCare. Sherry brings a wealth of experience and expertise and will be an invaluable addition to Nottingham CityCare’s Board. I look forward to working with Sherry to ensure we continue to deliver community care in Nottingham that makes a difference to people’s lives”.

Sherry Malik will be a Non-Executive Member of the Nottingham CityCare Board for a three-year term.
