Head of Engagement, Joined Up Care Derbyshire
I started my career in patient and public involvement when the Healthwatch network was launched in April 2013, setting up Healthwatch Derbyshire as its Chief Executive.
Since then I have been passionate about the ensuring citizens are present, powerful, and involved at all levels of decision making.
In Feb 2018 I became Head of Engagement for Derby and Derbyshire STP, now it’s Integrated Care System (ICS).
Within this role I have set up a flexible, multi-layered approach to involvement of Derbyshire’s citizens’ that aims to build relationships and trust, through continuous engagement, ensuring that patient and public insight is used to inform planning and decision-making within all levels of the ICS.
