About Me

Deputy Chief Executive and Executive Medical Director

I am an experienced Executive Director, with nearly 10 years experience at board level I have worked in a range of director roles including as executive director of primary care, community and mental health services before becoming medical director.

Having trained in Wales, New Zealand and England, I have been a respiratory physician for over 15 years, previously leading the lung cancer service in west Wales. 

I have significant experience of leading large scale, whole system strategy development and change programmes, including engagement and consultation with staff, public, partners, public representatives and the media. 

I led the Transforming Clinical Services programme in west Wales, engaging the support of senior clinicians in the agreement of our 20 year health and care strategy which includes an ambition to move to a more “social mode of health.” 

I’m passionate about leadership and the development of future leaders, and am the Welsh lead for the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management (FMLM), and have recently become a trustee of the FMLM charity in the UK. I’m also an honorary professor at Swansea University Medical School.
