Director of Strategy, Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board
Siân started her career in local government with responsibility for housing management, and moved to the NHS in 1990 as the revised GP Contract and purchaser/provider split came into being. She has had the privilege of working at primary care, locality, health authority, NHS Trust and Welsh Government levels and therefore has a broad understanding of influences and impacts of changes across the breadth of the NHS.
Siân’s focus is on service planning at a strategic level, and particularly working across organisational boundaries. She has been responsible for developing and implementing policy and service change across health, local authority and third sector organisations, particularly for vulnerable groups such as frail older people. She has worked at a national level to develop organisational and individual skills and capacity through working in partnership to improve services for people primarily in their own homes.
Siân has been in her current position as Director of Strategy at ABM UHB since November 2014. Immediately prior to this she was Assistant Director of Planning at Cardiff and Vale UHB.
Siân takes a keen interest in personal development, and has completed a Masters in Public Administration at Cardiff Business School, and in 2014 won an all Wales bursary to attend the Making Strategy Happen programme at Ashridge Business School.
Siân is married with two children, and is a reasonably competent Welsh speaker – looking for opportunities to practise!< Back to team
