Chairman Resignation

Chairman's Resignation

Janardan Sofat - Chairman

It is with some sadness and regret  that I write to inform you I have tendered my resignation  as Chairman of Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust. It has been a difficult decision and purely for personal reasons in that I am having to relocate to be able to help our elderly parents. 


It is likely that my term of office will come to an end at the end of March and NHS Improvement has a programme for securing a replacement for me by then.  It is a shame that I am unable to continue with my commitment to the Trust as it is an exciting time for the organisation and I hope that you will continue to support the Trust and the new Chair.


I have certainly enjoyed my time as Chairman, having been made to feel extremely welcome from my very first day. I feel tremendously  privileged to have been part of this fabulous organisation which I will certainly miss. I sincerely wish the Trust, staff and patients the very best for the future.
