The NHS continues to experience unprecedented challenges. Challenges provide exciting opportunities for those of us who embrace change. Working closely with all service areas within UHDB, as well as system partners, we are improving the way we deliver clinical and non-clinical services across our organisation and community.

  • Support the trust business units and divisions to transform and integrate community services to deliver high quality, patient-centred care with optimal use of human and financial resources.
  • Work with the business units to develop robust key performance indicators to track improvements, activity and innovations and to ensure benefit realisation across quality, people, performance and financial domains.
