About Me

Director of Strategy, Planning and Partnerships

Hannah started working in the NHS in 2002 as a General Management Graduate trainee in Gwent.  She subsequently undertook a number of operational roles before moving into strategic and operational planning.

Her experiences in planning led her to a role in Welsh Government where she introduced the first planning framework in NHS Wales that was aligned to the Financial Act Wales 2014.

Hannah’s passion for service transformation and improvement and organisational excellence was developed in her roles as Director of Planning and Performance with the Welsh Ambulance Services Trust and as Director of Transformation in Swansea Bay LHB. She has gained a keen interest in learning from other systems through her work as a Gateway Reviewer, contributor and lecturer for other sectors.

She moved back into an operational leadership role as Director for Planned Care, Cancer and Tertiary Services at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, where she led the recovery of services following the Covid-19 pandemic, before joining Aneurin Bevan University Health Board in 2023 as Executive Director of Strategy, Planning and Partnerships.
