The plight of mental health services in Norfolk has been long-running and painful for many of those involved.

Now as a new boss takes the helm it can only be hoped he has the leadership skills and vision to turn things around for the troubled trust.

Inspectors previously told Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust (NSFT) their leadership needed to improve and top board members resigned.

Now it is a wait to see situation as to who will replace the other high-ranking positions.

The new chief executive Antek Lejk says he is passionate, and wants to roll his sleeves up and get stuck in.

It is hoped he will still be as eager and keen when confronted with difficult decisions and forced to fight NSFT’s corner in an ever more challenging health service sector.
