Barbara is a former Radiotherapy Radiographer with a wide range of QI skills and experience, and has been working in an improvement role in the NHS for over 10 years. Barbara now works with the NNUHFT as Head of Patient Safety Improvement to promote patient safety and quality in all aspects of clinical practice and quality initiatives.
Using proven improvement methodologies, approaches and tools, she has experience of working with multi professional teams and individuals on a range of quality improvement projects across clinical networks and local health economies. She strongly believes that involving patients and staff in developing, designing and implementing changes is fundamental to sustaining improvement. She values the importance of networking with other colleagues to share best practice and examples of what works well so that we can learn from each other and avoid re inventing lots of wheels !
