My role as a transformational specialist incorporates 22 years of healthcare experience, the most recent 16 years supporting NHS Organisations. I am qualified in leadership and management; I have managed several new services from bid stage through CQC registration and finally mobilisation. I am also an accomplished project manager, over the past 6 years focusing on Capital project management and delivery of major schemes through the P21+ and P22 procurement routes on behalf of several different NHS Trusts in the Northwest.
