Welcome Back Susan

After 8 years of working for the Scottish Government, Susan Bishop has returned to work in NHS Forth Valley as Head of Efficiency, Improvement and Innovation.

Susan previously worked as Pharmacy Services Manager for Primary Care in Forth Valley before moving to NHS Tayside and taking up a national secondment.  During her time with the Scottish Government she has worked in a number of key roles to support the development and implementation of a wide range of quality, improvement and efficiency initiatives across NHS Scotland.

She explained: “It’s nice to see some familiar faces and I’m looking forward to catching up with former colleagues as well as meeting many new ones over the coming weeks and months.

“I also want to listen and learn about the wide range of work already underway in NHS Forth Valley and use some of the experience I’ve gained over the last few years to help drive forward further improvements.”

Susan believes there are lots of opportunities to explore new ways of doing things and is keen to harness local creativity and ideas for innovation across the organisation.  Although she will be out and about meeting lots of people she’d also love to hear from anyone who has ideas or suggestions for improvements that they would like to discuss.
