OBE awarded to CMFT Chairman, Steve Mycio

steve mycioTrust is delighted with the news that its Chairman, Steve Mycio, has been awarded an OBE in the 2016 Queen's Birthday Honours, for voluntary and charitable services to Health and Wellbeing in Manchester.

Steve has been a key figure in the city in developing and implementing plans to improve the health and wellbeing of the diverse communities across Manchester over the past 25 years.  His knowledge of the challenges facing the wider health economy has underpinned Steve's outstanding contribution.  Steve established within Manchester City Council the Joint Health Unit, a collaboration with the local Primary Care Trust, one of the first such ventures in the country.

Steve has always been at the forefront in his unique career during his time as Deputy Chief Executive of Manchester City Council and as Chief Executive of the Police & Crime Commissioner's Office and, most notably, recently leading work on Manchester's Health & Social Care Plan (the Locality Plan) to ensure that we deliver the best care to patients and citizens across the city and beyond.

Sir Michael Deegan, Chief Executive of CMFT, said:  "Steve has been an inspiration to our Board and other partners in driving forward our ambition to improve the lives of the people of Manchester."

Steve Mycio said:  "I consider it a privilege to be Chairman of CMFT, a leading NHS organisation serving the people of Greater Manchester, and I would want this honour to reflect the hard work and dedication of all our staff."

Steve, who is a born and bred Mancunian, took up post as Chairman of Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in January 2015.

Prior to becoming Chairman, Steve was a Non-Executive Director of CMFT for five years and Board champion for equality, diversity and inclusion.  He has held a number of senior public service positions in Manchester throughout his career, including Deputy Chief Executive (Performance and Inclusion) and Deputy Chief Executive (Regeneration) of Manchester City Council.   He was also interim Chief Executive at the office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.

He has been involved in a number of voluntary activities including being a Governor of Manchester Health Academy and a Board Member of Manchester United Foundation Charity.  He has also been a very active member of the community, raising money for charity in his spare time.
