David Bradley joined South West London and St George's Mental Health NHS Trust as Chief Executive in 2012 from Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust where he built a reputation for using innovation to drive quality and service transformation as Chief Operating Officer.

David has over 20 years’ experience working within the NHS and social care. He is committed to improving patient care and ensuring that people who need mental health services can access the very best care and treatment possible. Since joining the Trust David has overseen a number of high profile developments which have been instrumental in the continuing success of the organisation, leading to the Trust's 2016 ‘Good’ rating from the Care Quality Commission. Under David’s guidance, South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust continues to improve and was rated the top mental health trust in England in the CQC’s community mental health services survey in 2016. 

The development of the organisation’s landmark £160m Estate Modernisation Programme will revolutionise the way mental health services are delivered in south west London for generations to come. The programme will see the building of two new world class state-of-the art mental health facilities in the heart of their local communities. Springfield University Hospitals 1840 Victorian Asylum and Tolworth Hospital will both be replaced over the next four years.

In 2016 David's experience in leading transformational change in the NHS helped to launch a new partnership with neighbouring mental health trusts – South London and Maudsley, and Oxleas - to identify areas where collaboration could lead to greater efficiencies, better specialised services and seamless care pathways for people using mental health services.
