Sir Andrew Cash has announced his decision to step down as chief executive of Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS this summer after four decades in the NHS.

He said: ‘Deciding to retire was tough because of the loyalty I feel to the amazing people who work and volunteer in the Trust’s hospitals and community services.

‘It has been a privilege to be the Chief Executive of Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust for the past 16 years and I will always treasure the long-lasting friendships and relationships developed during my time at the Trust, as well as the accomplishments and challenges experienced during my career.’

His work on community health services and adult acute services contributed to the Trust becoming one of the largest integrated health providers in the NHS.

Chief executive of NHS England Simon Stevens said: ‘Andrew has made an enormous contribution to the NHS over many years of public service, both regionally and nationally.

‘As he passes on the leadership baton in Sheffield it is heartening that one of our most experienced and successful hospital chief executives is now stepping up to lead the next chapter of the NHS evolution through the creation of the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System.’
