Before becoming Medical Director of the NHS in 2007, Sir Bruce was a cardiac surgeon in Birmingham and London. He established the National Audit Cardiac Surgical Database in 1994, renowned for the public dissemination of clinical outcomes.
Sir Bruce takes over the Chairmanship of The Scar Free Foundation from former M&S Chairman, Stuart Rose, who has led the charity since 2010.
“I am looking forward to leading the charity as we begin to realise our ambition of scar free healing in a generation. Stuart leaves the charity in great shape with an exciting new vision, a clear research strategy and a strong fundraising base. I’d like to pay tribute to Stuart’s contribution as Chairman and before that as Appeal Chairman. He will be missed on the Board but I know he will continue to support our work in ways that only he can”.
