Programme Director Strategic Estates
Partnerships and Planning, Lincolnshire STP

Jacqui is currently the Lincolnshire NHS Programme Director for Strategic Estates, Planning & Partnerships working with all of the local NHS organisations, the County Council and the District Councils. This work includes the planning for growth, Towns Fund bids and capital integration opportunities to improve health outcomes. Jacqui has worked in Lincolnshire for the past three years, prior to this she spent 15 years leading and delivering strategic change programmes and projects across Hertfordshire. This included the changes to hospital services across the county, the development of the award winning New QEII Hospital Welwyn Garden City and the refresh of the Hertfordshire Health and Wellbeing Strategy in 2016.

Jacqui is a senior manager with strong project management, communication, organisational and presentation skills. She joined the NHS in Hertfordshire in 2002, after a career in the commercial and charity sectors. Most of her NHS work has involved leading on strategic planning and implementing change across the county, including a five year stint as Programme Director for transformational change across the Hertfordshire health economy, from 2008. Jacqui led the development of the New QEII Hospital in Welwyn Garden City from inception to financial close, a project which involved significant stakeholder engagement in a politically challenging environment. The New QEII Hospital is a commissioner-led £30m community facility which delivers new models of care to the local community. All of these changes have been made in the context of developing sustainable integrated services which involve social care and the voluntary sector, in order to deliver the best possible outcomes for patients and carers.
