Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin
Worked with the whole Health Community, in partnership with colleague
John MacDonald, to develop a clinically led and publically accepted service strategy. Shropshire has two A & Es, a total population of c500k, and a history of poor relationships, especially
with local politicians and stakeholders.
I have been working with the Confederation to explore practical implementation of national policy on Vertical Integration,
included a policy seminar with Director level DH input, drawing interesting, unexpected conclusions and leading to a forthcoming
Confederation policy paper.
NHS PST (Performance Spport Team)
Support to several NHS Trusts (including aspiring FTs) and PCTs.
Both direct support and co-working, feedback based on tailored diagnostic processes, group facilitation, 1:1 coaching,

hardest-pressed organisations in the NHS, always with multi-factorial issues, bringing key targets into sustained delivery while achieving financial control. Provided support, directly or indirectly, to approximately 20 of the country’s most challenged organisations.
Fitness for Purpose Development Plan for a challenged £1.1bn PCT, service modernisation and partnership work in hard-pressed
health economies. A review of the management of national Dental Policy for the Deputy Chief Medical Officer, resulting
in a report seen by Ministers and influencing national policy. With NatPaCT I
worked on the interface between the national IT programme, Primary care and policy development in the DH during implementation
of the GMS contract.
