Quality Improvement Manager, ABCi
Aneurin Bevan University Health BoardWales
Thanks for viewing my profile; I'm Sam. I'm a Quality Improvement Manager for Aneurin Bevan Health Board (ABUHB), part of ABCi. I am a qualified Occupational Therapist, who has a strong interest in Quality Improvement, business functions and critical problem solving.
I've worked in a variety of roles in the public and third sector. My experiences have provided me insight in the challenges faced in various settings and the need for QI to drive change to meet patient needs.
I have a strong interest in patient experience and QI, as well as enriching a QI culture within services.
