²gether NHS Foundation Trust is pleased to welcome Neil Savage as the new Director of Organisational Development.

Neil brings extensive experience to the role, having held a number of roles within other NHS trusts. He is joining ²gether from his previous role as Director of HR Transformation, leading on the HR integration of Birmingham Children’s and Birmingham Women’s NHS Foundation Trusts.

Prior to that, Neil worked at Birmingham Women’s NHS Foundation Trust as Chief Operating Officer. In this role, he successfully delivered local and national performance and access targets, developed and implemented a number of service improvements and people strategies, as well as implementing Business Continuity Management and Emergency Planning systems.

Neil is no stranger to the area ²gether covers, having previously worked for Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. He has also worked in HR roles for other NHS trusts, covering acute, mental health, learning disabilities and community services.

He is a Chartered Fellow of the CIPD and was the winner of the Health Education England West Midlands Inspirational Leader of the Year award in 2015, as well as being shortlisted as national finalist in 2016. 

Neil said: “I am very proud to be joining ²gether NHS Foundation Trust. They are a forward-thinking and innovative trust and I’m excited to build on the excellent work of my predecessor, Carol Sparks, who is retiring.

“I’m a firm believer that if we have engaged and committed staff, this has a positive impact on the quality of the services we deliver to our communities, so the benefit and welfare of all my colleagues will be one of my main priorities.

“I’m also looking forward to meeting members of the communities we serve and learning about the partner organisations we work with, and using this knowledge to enhance the service we offer.”

Shaun Clee, Chief Executive, ²gether NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Neil to the trust and are looking forward to working him.

“Neil’s extensive previous experience, both in mental health and learning disabilities, and in the wider NHS, will be a fantastic asset to the trust and we will certainly be utilising the skills and knowledge he brings with him.”
