David, group director of strategy and partnerships at Leicestershire Partnership and Northamptonshire Healthcare Associate University Group, has been elected as NHS Providers’ new Strategy Directors’ network chair.

David Williams said “I am delighted to have this opportunity. Working for community and mental health trusts has taught me the importance of partnership working in our local communities, and integrating health and care together. I hope I can bring this experience to the network and help us all find solutions to the many challenges that the NHS faces now and will continue to face for the next few years.

“I would like to be able to look back in two years and see that across the NHS we have worked together against racism and that we have made real progress to delivering equity in healthcare to everyone.”

The Strategy Directors’ network is one of 12 networks overseen by NHS Providers which takes part in negotiations between NHS trusts and the Department of Health and provides development support to trust leaders.

A spokesperson for the Strategy Directors’ Network said: “We had an excellent turnout in this election and would like to thank all those who participated in the process.”
