Joe joined Royal Surrey in 2017 having been in Strategy roles in the largest community Trust in Central London for three years previously and for the independent social and health care provider, Care UK, for three years prior to that. During this time he learnt what could be achieved by linking up all elements of health and social care and the third sector around patients and he was very excited to continue this work for Guildford & Waverley by bringing the adult community services contract to Royal Surrey.
Joe’s role is to support Trust strategy development and delivery and ensure that we have partnerships with stakeholders, both public and private, which enable us to best serve our patients across the services we run. Joe has an undergraduate degree and an MBA from Cambridge University and is married with two young children.
