Peninsula NHS Treatment Centre in Plymouth has appointed Sarah Fell to the role of Finance Manager.
Sarah comes to the hospital with a wealth of experience in NHS and health finance. She qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant in 2002, following a BTEC Higher National Diploma in Business and Finance from the Swansea Institute of Higher Education and a degree in Public Policy and Management from Sheffield Hallam University.
As well as extensive experience within the NHS in the South West, Sarah has also worked in the commercial sector (including as Finance Manager for Partnerships South West at construction firm Galliford Try PLC) and comes to Peninsula NHS Treatment Centre from Plymouth City Council where she was Finance Business Partner.
Sarah’s new role will see her supporting the senior management team at Peninsula NHS Treatment Centre, helping to enhance performance, make the best use of financial information and business analysis, and successfully implement new projects.
Mark White, Hospital Director at Peninsula NHS Treatment Centre and who was previously Senior Finance Manager, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Sarah to our team. Her skills and expertise will be invaluable to us as we continue to provide the highest possible quality of care to our patients in an ever-changing and challenging healthcare environment.”
Peninsula NHS Treatment Centre welcomed its first NHS patients in April 2005. Tens of thousands of patients have received top quality care at the hospital for orthopaedic surgery (minor and major), hernia repair and gall bladder removal, cataract treatment, endoscopy and diagnostic imaging (such as X-rays).
The hospital was the first of its kind to achieve an overall ‘Outstanding’ rating from the Care Quality Commission and continues to treat NHS patients.
