‘It is an absolute honour to be able to join NHS West Yorkshire Integrated Care Board at this historic juncture and to contribute to an already strong partnership. I have been particularly drawn by the unequivocal and passionate desire by board members and system leaders to drive improvements and innovation across population health whilst tackling health inequalities by addressing social and economic determinants of health. I’m looking forward to working collaboratively and inclusively with the board and wider stakeholders.
