We’re delighted to welcome Dr Keith McNeil, CEO of Addenbrooke’s to come and talk to our members in June.

An internationally recognised expert in the fields of lung transplantation and pulmonary vascular disease, Keith was appointed as chief executive in November 2012. He joined CUH from one of the largest health services in Australia – Metro North Health Service in Brisbane – where he had been CEO since 2008. As CUH chief executive, Keith oversees how the Trust is managed, ensuring patients receive high quality safe care. His role also means that he is accountable for the financial management of the Trust and for its strategic development.

Keith spent two years as a senior transplant fellow at Papworth Hospital and a further five years working jointly at Papworth and CUH as a cardio-pulmonary transplant and respiratory physician and director of the pulmonary vascular disease unit. During this time, Keith was pivotal in establishing the UK’s centre for pulmonary endarterectomy at Papworth and was an adviser to the Department of Health on pulmonary hypertension.

Keith began his chief executive career in 2007 in his native Australia at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, a 980-bed teaching hospital, one of the largest teaching hospitals in the southern hemisphere. In 2008 he was appointed professor of medicine at the University of Queensland.

Keith also served in the Australian Special Forces where he was trained in survival techniques and as a weapons expert.
