We are delighted to announce that Prof Iain Moppett has been appointed as Director of the National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia (NIAA) Health Services Research Centre (HSRC). Prof Moppett will take up the appointment with effect from 1st April 2022.

Prof Moppett is currently the Deputy Director of the NIAA HSRC and has been leading the work on the 3rd Sprint National Anaesthesia Project (SNAP3) looking to examine frailty, delirium and the older surgical patient. He is Professor of Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine and Honorary Consultant Anaesthetist at the University of Nottingham and Nottingham University Hospitals. Iain's primary academic interests are in improving outcomes for older patients undergoing surgery and in perioperative patient safety. He is also the Chair of the CPOC National Safety Standards for Invasive Procedures (NatSSSIPs).

Prof Moppett will be taking over from Professor Ramani Moonesinghe who has led the HSRC since April 2016. Under the leadership of Prof Moonesinghe the HSRC has continued to grow and develop various projects covering national clinical audit and quality improvement initiatives. We would like to take this opportunity to thank her for all this work and vision in implementing the HSRC aims and strategy. Her dedication and leadership have made the HSRC stronger and provided the pillars needed to build on for the future.

'Since its inception in 2011, the Health Services Research Centre has successfully delivered many patient-centred projects, largely delivered by on the ground clinicians across the country. I am delighted and humbled in equal measure to be given the opportunity to lead HSRC in its highly respected research and evaluation programme, which will continue to have significant benefit for our patients and improve clinical practice.'
Prof Iain Moppett
