Sara Ford, Director of Customer and Strategy for NHS Supply Chain
Sara joined NHS Supply Chain late in 2018 as the Corporate Strategy and Communications Director. She joined from a 20+ year career in Accenture, a global management consultancy, where she was the Managing Director responsible for their UK & Ireland Healthcare Consulting business.
Prior to joining NHS Supply Chain, Sara led a team over 7 years working across a number of Acute Trusts, supporting them to deliver operational efficiencies and improved clinical outcomes.
A desire to deliver these changes at a national level led Sara to join NHS Supply Chain, where she has helped to deliver a revised strategy that recognises the evolving needs of the healthcare system.
An economist by background, Sara has also held roles on the London Council of the CBI, as well as sponsoring diversity programmes across large organisations, aligned to her interests in CSR.
