Key redevelopment appointment at Imperial College Healthcare to progress major rebuild and refurbishment plans for all sites

Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust has appointed Matthew Tulley as director of redevelopment, part of the executive management team. 

The appointment comes at an important time for the Trust’s redevelopment ambitions, with proposed rebuilds and major refurbishments for our St Mary’s, Charing Cross and Hammersmith sites included in the Government’s Health Infrastructure Plan announced in September 2019.
Matthew will lead on the Trust’s strategic redevelopment vision and how we translate that vision into detailed plans, working closely with our staff, patients, partners and local communities.

Matthew was the redevelopment director at Barts Health NHS Trust from 2006 to 2012, leading the £1.2bn development of the Barts and the Royal London hospitals, currently the largest new hospitals development in the UK. He then took up his current role at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust where he has overseen the completion of phases 2 and 3 of its redevelopment programme and business case approval of phase 4. He was also responsible for the Trusts’ sustainability and arts programmes.  Matthew started his career at the National Audit Office before spending several years at Partnerships UK, the Treasury body specialising in the development and procurement of major projects.

Chief executive Professor Tim Orchard said: “I’m extremely pleased to welcome Matthew to the executive team. He brings with him a wealth of redevelopment experience that will be so important as we embark on the journey to create buildings that are truly fit for the future - both in terms of the fantastic care, research and education we aspire to offer and the wider contribution we want to make to our local communities.”

Matthew Tulley said: “I’m delighted to be joining Imperial College Healthcare at such an exciting time. In partnership with patients, staff are continuing to build on the Trust’s long legacy of fantastic care and innovation and they rightly all want buildings to match. My job will be to help us create an estate that supports genuinely joined-up care, promotes health and wellbeing and is a real asset to the local environment, drawing on all of the best insights into digital, design and sustainability.”

Matthew will take up his post at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in February 2020. Previous redevelopment director Michele Wheeler left the Trust for a new post in Hong Kong in June last year.
