About Me

Director of Operations

In June 2017, I joined the health board as the turnaround director and I have enjoyed many years working within the NHS.

I have led the work across the organisation to drive improvements in the delivery of the health board’s cost improvement plans, whilst ensuring there remains focus on benefits to patient care and experience, as well as improved performance.

Throughout my career, I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience, which has included a range of performance management and planning roles, various senior operational management roles in both England and Wales and a national role overseeing the development of service reconfiguration plans across the NHS in Wales.

In the Welsh Government’s Health and Social Care Group, I have also held the role of delivery programme director, where I was responsible for overseeing the performance management of seven health boards and three NHS trusts, as well as the development of national policy on unscheduled care, planned care, performance management and planning of NHS Wales.
