This senior role has been created to provide the Group with a strategic lead to further develop its focus on the delivery of high quality, safe services and reviewing the existing governance and assurance arrangements.
Siân will focus on the management and transparent reporting of safety, quality and compliance, with a view to expanding on its existing commitment to effective governance systems.
She is a Medical Law and Legal Practice graduate and nurse, with 28 years of experience in healthcare, ten years of which have been spent in leading governance and compliance work and patient safety investigations in the NHS, making her ideally suited to undertake this new position.
Siân has previously led on independent compliance assignments for a number of providers and acted as a lead independent patient safety investigator, across a range of health services.
Siân Wicks said: "I am pleased and excited to be joining an organisation with an excellent reputation in the healthcare sector."
"My role will be to build on the high quality care being provided in so many diverse services across the Group, encouraging a culture of continuous quality improvement within the organisation."
"This means ensuring the required standards are achieved; identifying and managing the risks to quality and ensuring delivery of best practice."
"This will help the Group to deliver consistently high quality treatment and support to its service users and their families. It will also re-enforce to healthcare commissioners our commitment to providing safe, high quality services."
"I am looking forward to the challenges ahead."
