Background and Experience

Angela joined the NHS in 2003 as a management accountant in South Devon and Torbay NHS Trust (now Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust). Angela initially supported the Women’s and Children’s directorate before expanding her portfolio to include the medical directorate. Following a restructure of clinical services Angela took on a role overseeing the management accounts functions across all clinical services which gave her a really strong grounding in the delivery of front line hospital services. In 2008 Angela joined the Royal Cornwall NHS Trust to lead on their medium term financial planning and Cost Improvement Planning. During this time Angela supported a number of major service redesign programmes of work.

After 18 months in role Angela took an opportunity to join the South West Specialised Commissioning team to understand more about complex service provision for larger patient populations. During her time here Angela oversaw the transition into the new commissioning structures as part of the NHS reorganisation in 2012. As part of this process Angela transitioned into a role of Head of Finance for NHS England leading the finance function for the commissioning of primary care and supporting the CCG assurance process. This role opened up an opportunity in 2014 to join Northern, Eastern and Western Devon CCG as Deputy Chief Finance Officer overseeing the CCGs finance function for financial reporting and operational planning. Angela quickly started to fill the space required as part of the Success Regime and later the STP to bring the finance network of organisations together within Devon.

Angela has lived in Devon for the majority of her life and currently resides in Exeter with her husband and daughter.
