Following a recent interview process, we are pleased to announce that Sue Holden has been appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer for the Advancing Quality Alliance (Aqua).
Sue, who is currently the National Director for Intensive Support at NHS England and NHS Improvement, will take up the post in June following the retirement of current CEO Lesley Massey. Sue has occupied several national improvement leadership roles in her NHS career and brings an energy and drive for continuous improvement. Sue will continue to build on Aqua’s already strong reputation for working in partnership with customers to enable them to transform and improve the provision of safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care.
Sir David Dalton, Chair of Aqua’s Board said:
“On behalf of the Board we are delighted to have appointed Sue to the role of CEO. To have attracted someone with such calibre is fantastic and she brings with her a wealth of experience and knowledge and she will be a great asset for our members and customers.
On her appointment Sue said:
“I am really excited to be joining an organisation which has such a great reputation for doing good work in developing and enabling improvements which benefit patients.”
Sue joins Aqua at a really exciting time as we work to deliver our strategy to be a leading improvement partner to the NHS and care system as well as supporting our valued members and customers to shape change, inspire quality and transform care.
