Leadership changes Sarah Faulkner, Director of Quality retired after eight years in our trust. Sarah joined us in 2009 and had a huge impact during her time here. Sarah established our Quality Strategy which set the groundings for the improvement work and methodology embedded in the organisation today. She also created the patient experience team to gather feedback to put patients at the heart of everything we do and improve services as a result. It is safe to say we would not be where we are today without Sarah’s input. We wish Sarah the very best of luck in whatever she chooses to do in the next phase of her life. Sarah’s departure has given us the opportunity to do something different and, as a result, we are recruiting for a new director of quality, innovation and improvement to drive forward the improvement agenda in the organisation.
