Dr Junaid Bajwa and Mark Stansfeld have joined Nuffield Health’s Board of Governors.

Bajwa has spent more than 15 years working across primary care, secondary care and public health settings. In addition, he acted as a policymaker within the UK, where he specialises in informatics, digital transformation, and leadership. He is currently a practising physician in the NHS, chief medical scientist at Microsoft Research and non-executive director at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.


Stansfeld has over 30 years’ experience in the telecoms and digital economy with companies such as giffgaff and O2. Currently, he is chairing DCMS’s largest 5G trials testbed with WM5G, aimed at driving adoption at scale of 5G technologies in health, manufacturing and transport. He is also a non-executive director for broadband provider Quickline and has previously been a non-executive director of the West Midlands SHA and the West Bromwich Building Society.

Dr Natalie-Jane Macdonald, chair of Nuffield Health, said: ‘I’m delighted to welcome Junaid and Mark to the Board. Their background and experiences will complement the existing board with different experience, knowledge and connections that will be invaluable to the Charity. As we emerge from the pandemic, we are at a pivotal time in the charity’s history, with an even greater ambition to have a positive impact on people’s lives and help build a healthier nation. I have no doubt that these additions to the Board will help us progress even further on this journey.’
