Tracy Luckett has been appointed chief nurse at Great Ormond Street Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Tracy is currently director of nursing and allied healthcare professions at Moorfields Eye Hospital, where she has worked for the last 13 years. She will take up her new post on 1 February 2022. Tracy will be replacing Alison Robertson, who has been chief nurse at GOSH since the spring of 2018.

Mat Shaw, chief executive of Great Ormond Street Hospital Trust, said:

“We’re delighted to welcome Tracy at an exciting time for the Trust. We’ve been impressed by her passion for nursing and her brilliant track record in the profession. Tracy will lead a team of nursing and allied healthcare professionals who are committed to putting children and young people first as we recover and transform our services following the pandemic.

“She will also be a critical part of our executive team, helping GOSH become a great place to work, a great place for learning and research, and a great place to be cared for. Tracy follows in the footsteps of the fantastic Alison Robertson, whose experience, leadership, and determined support for nursing and the allied professions has been invaluable in the last three years.”

Tracy Luckett said:

“I’m thrilled to be joining the team at Great Ormond Street and looking forward to making a start with my new colleagues. It’s a great opportunity, with such a celebrated organisation, and I’m pleased to be playing a part in the GOSH story.”

Tracy began her nursing career in North Wales at Wrexham Maelor Hospital and worked in several trusts including Homerton University Hospital before joining Moorfields. She became the director of nursing and allied healthcare professions at Moorfields in 2011. Recently, her commitment to nursing was recognised when she was presented with a prestigious Gold Award from the NHS chief nursing officer, Ruth May.
