Two new Non-Executive Directors for ROH Board

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital is pleased to announce the appointment of Jenny Belza and Simon Page as Non-Executive Directors, to the Trust Board, from February 2024.

 Tim Pile, Chair of the Board at ROH said: “The ROH is an incredible organisation, restoring independence to help patients live healthy and fulfilling lives. I’m delighted to welcome Jenny and Simon to the Board. I am certain that the wealth of experience and insight they bring will contribute significantly to the continued growth and success of the ROH.

“We are looking forward to furthering our strong working relationships between the trusts in Birmingham and Solihull and neighbouring Integrated Care Systems with these appointments, and also look forward to the benefits this will bring.”


Jenny Belza

A registered nurse with over 40 years’ experience working in the NHS, Jenny undertook her general nurse training in South Wales and then specialised in neurosurgery and has worked in acute hospitals in Cardiff, Cambridge and Leicester.

She has held a number of senior positions as a NHS manager within hospitals, health authorities and Primary Care Trusts (PCTs). Jenny worked for 11 years in Birmingham in senior commissioning roles. Her most recent full-time position was as a Chief Nurse in one of the Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). 

She has extensive experience of working at Board level including as a Non-Executive Director and Vice Chair at Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust and is currently a governor at University College Birmingham.

Jenny is passionate about ensuring patients receive safe, effective care of the highest quality, addressing health inequalities and supporting the development of a compassionate and inclusive workforce.


Simon Page

Simon Page joined the South Warwickshire University Foundation Trust as a Non-Executive Director in February 2016 and is currently its Deputy Chair. This followed a career of over 30 years, with wide ranging leadership experience in the private sector as Chairman, Managing Director and Director. Simon's career, prior to South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust, centred around retailing and manufacturing businesses operating within the consumer and building products markets.

He has a strong background in business transformation, marketing, sales and commercial leadership, working for some well known blue-chip brands, in both the prestige branded and mass-market arenas; these include Aga, Fired Earth, Villeroy & Boch and Rangemaster. This has given him a clear insight into working for complex international organisations, change management, strategy development and delivery, and of the importance of delivering success with and through others, especially in periods of change.
