Sylvia Tang has been appointed chief executive of specialist healthcare provider The Huntercombe Group.

Tang has 14 years’ experience at board level in both the NHS and independent health and social care organisations. This includes the role of Medical Director and Deputy CEO at Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust and CEO at Priory Healthcare and Group Medical Director at Priory Group.

She is a psychiatrist by profession and will bring significant experience to THG, which provides expert care for people affected by mental illness, learning disability and brain injury.

Tang said: “I am delighted to be joining the Huntercombe team, but first and foremost wish to recognise the dedication and determination of their staff at this time.

“THG’s values and its commitment to delivering compassionate and quality care has never been more vital and I plan to build on this reputation. I will be talking to staff during ‘virtual’ site visits in the coming months, so I can learn more about the care they are giving to patient and residents.”

Tang joins The Huntercombe Group as its parent company, Four Seasons Healthcare, continues to struggle with debt-related issues and seeks to find further buyers for its care homes.
