Prior to that she was Managing Director of Central Surrey Health, having established it as the UK’s first co-owned social enterprise from NHS community health services.

Tricia is a strategic thinker with a track record of influencing at national/political and local level and a strong commitment to organisational improvement and staff engagement. Her clinical background is as a speech and language therapist and she remains registered with HCPC. In her earlier management career at the East Elmbridge and Mid Surrey Primary Care Trust she was responsible for delivering significant service redesign with full stakeholder support.

She is currently a Non-Executive Director of the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Academic Health Science Network and of the South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust. She is also a Visiting Professor in the School of Health Sciences at the University of Surrey.
