In his role as Clinical Director, Warren will be working with colleagues to promote clinician and practitioner engagement by developing clear, robust structures and prominent roles for senior clinical leaders to co-produce services by working in partnership with network managers. Continuous quality improvement and clinical effectiveness will be principles underpinning everything that we do and implementing the Trust Quality Strategy will be one of my personal priorities. Research and Innovation have for some time been recognised as an area of strength for this network and we will be aiming to continue this tradition by increasing our capacity for high quality research and innovation by proactively engaging with colleagues in our Community Services.
