Two new directors are to join the board of Croydon Health Services NHS Trust.
Edward Adams has been appointed as director of governence and Steve Orman will take up a role as director of infomatics, as the trust continues efforts to restore stability to a management structure that been plagued by infighting in the past.
The announcements come in the week it emerged the trust had a larger shortfall of permanent A&E staff than all but one other in the UK.
John Goulston, chief executive, said: "These new directors will work closely with the executive and clinical directors to ensure we continue to improve the experience of people using hospital and community services, as we work to become a consistently high performing trust for people in Croydon and South West London."
Mr Adams has been appointed permanently after working in the role on an interim basis since April. Mr Orman will take up his post in November.
They will join Stephen Ebbs, appointed as medical director in August, as new recruits on the board.
Mr Adams, former head of governance at NHS London, said: “During my time at the trust, I have helped the board create a more streamlined committee structure and helped develop our governance processes.
"These are essential to ensuring we deliver the highest level of clinical services with patient experience and safety at their heart. I am looking forward to continuing to do this work with colleagues across the trust as a substantive member of the leadership team."
Mr Orman will help the trust to establish a paperless system by 2018.
