We are delighted to share the news that Sarah Brampton has been appointed as our new Director of Finance.
The move will see a return to the organisation for Sarah, who used to be our Director of Financial Services and Deputy Director of Finance.
She left in March 2013 to take up the post of Director of Finance at Devon Partnership NHS Trust and was also later appointed Deputy Chief Executive there in 2016.
Sarah, who lives in Tavistock with her family, has more than 20 years' healthcare experience and has worked within all sectors of the NHS, including acute, mental health and commissioning.
Sarah will be University Hospital Plymouth’s first female Director of Finance and colleagues are looking forward to welcoming her back to our #1BigTeam, when she starts in her new role in June.
Sarah said: “I am really excited to be returning to Plymouth as Director of Finance and I’m looking forward to getting reacquainted with so many people I know and feel warmly towards. I will be sad to leave Devon Partnership NHS Trust where I have felt part of a very close working family. I have really enjoyed my time in a specialist trust but this is the right move for me at the right time.”
Ann James, Chief Executive, said: “Sarah has great experience and demonstrated the vast skills and knowledge she has at interview. She is widely respected and well-regarded by many colleagues in Plymouth and right across Devon and Cornwall. We’re very pleased to have appointed her and we’re looking forward to Sarah joining us in early summer.”
