New Chief Executive at the David Nott Foundation

It is with great pleasure that we announce Elly Nott, Co-Founder of the David Nott Foundation, has been re-appointed as Chief Executive. Elly shares her thoughts on leading the organisation post-pandemic and her vision for the future.

I am delighted to share that I am returning to the role of Chief Executive of the Foundation. The David Nott Foundation is in my DNA, and it is a privilege to have been given the opportunity to lead the organisation I am so proud to have founded with David. 

We have exciting plans for the future. We want to increase the number of surgical training courses we run globally and deepen our relationships with the selected countries within which we work. We also want to develop a bespoke obstetrics and neonatal course, to help doctors and midwives in conflict-affected states and austere environments better support expectant mothers and their babies.

At the heart of our mission is our determination to empower local healthcare workers in the places we operate and learn as much from them as they learn for us. Building strong relationships enables us to gather the most accurate picture of what they need during times of crisis – and ensure we deliver. 

It’s an honour to serve them.
