Sally Young – Director of Corporate Governance, Communications and Engagement (Non Voting Member)

Sally worked at Leighton Hospital near Crewe for five years at the start of her NHS career and then retrained as a Primary School teacher when her children were young. She returned to the NHS in 2004 and since then has worked in a number of roles across primary care, commissioning, corporate affairs and governance.

Sally has worked with the CCGs in south Staffordshire since they were authorised in 2011, leading on the authorisation and governance process from the very beginning. In her most recent role, she has continued to lead the Corporate Governance, Communications and Engagement functions across the three CCGs.

Sally is interested in making governance arrangements simple and effective, and supporting the wider CCG team become the best they can be. She has a passion for making patient and public engagement real.
