I am an experienced and effective senior leader with extensive experience of service improvement, healthcare management, building teams and boards, and delivering plans and strategies within organisations and whole systems of care. I have an in-depth understanding of governance, risk management and board assurance and have successfully led large organisations as CEO and Accountable Officer for seventeen years. I have significant experience of working alongside primary care clinicians, social care, community services and GP practice leaders in developing integrated working.
Good healthcare requires strong productive partnerships and in all my work I place a high priority on building the sustainable relationships needed with all parts of health and social care, regulators, patients and communities as key stakeholders.
I have a track record of leading teams and organisations through significant transition whilst maintaining delivery on finance and services. I have an established reputation for working proactively to find innovative and pragmatic solutions to difficult and complex issues.
