I previously worked for KPMG, delivering audit and assurance reviews, and subsequently in KPMG Transaction Services advising on mergers and acquisitions across a wide range of clients.
I am passionate about delivering improvements in health and wellbeing for communities we serve. I am the Vice Chair of the Healthcare Finance Management Association (HFMA) South Central Branch. I have qualified with and am a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales.
My core responsibilities include:
- The Trust’s financial accounting arrangements meet our external set standards
- The Trust meets all its financial targets
