Dr Maxine Power

As the Director of Innovation and Improvement Science at Salford Royal I provide strategic leadership, improvement expertise and delivery support for large scale change programmes being delivered locally in Salford, regionally with partners (MAHSC and GM AHSN) and nationally (NHS England and NHS QUEST). Salford Royal partners with Salford Clinical Commissioning Group and Salford City Council in a joint improvement venture (Haelo) a centre which hosts improvement experts, clinicians and researchers.

This is where I saw Salford Red Devils Foundation fitting in due to the current work they deliver around health changes. I will be using my expertise to help strategically and support and progress the fantastic current work delivered by the Foundation.

As Managing Director of Haelo, I provide operational leadership to the centre, which employs 25 WTE staff and contracts with high quality delivery partners to deliver programmes with a collective operating budget of £5m (2013-14). The primary purpose of Haelo is to improve population health and healthcare for the Salford residents; however we believe this is only possible if we invest in learning partnerships with like-minded providers which centre on shared ambitions for excellence, inclusion and learning. My key responsibilities include advising the board on strategic planning, relationship management, improvement programme design/evaluation and capability building. A director level senior leadership team of 4 provide direct reports on specialist functions of programme delivery, measurement, improvement science, and knowledge and communications.

Prior to my current role, I worked in the Department of Health Quality Innovation, Productivity and Prevention team (QIPP) as a National Improvement Advisor. In this role I led the design and delivery of a national programme, Safety Express, for safety improvement and cost reduction. I transitioned to the Department of Health from a regional appointment as Director of the Improvement Alliance for NHS North West. In this role, I worked with national and international leaders to develop and deliver capability programmes (including board development programmes, improvement advisor training and one day programmes). I also set up and ran 2 demonstration programmes of regional collaboratives in stroke and safety improvement for 31 participant hospitals. I am a non-executive director (governor) on the Board of Governors of the Health Foundation and sit on its Improvement Science Development Group.

Stephen Hindley - Steve Hindley Cancer Ambassador

Stephen is a retired Salford Resident who got involved with the Foundation because he wanted to give back to his local community. Stephen gives up his own time to assist in the delivery of the Salford Red Devils Foundation 'Tackle Cancer' programme. Stephen engages Salfordian males aged 50+ in the importance of being aware of the signs and symptoms of cancers, delivering his own poignant personal experiences of tackling prostate cancer to ensure this important message gets across. Alongside this Stephen also passes on his business acumen and contacts to enable the Foundation to develop further and reach more of the community which he holds so dear, his continued work and use of his own personal events to help other Salfordians benefit and lead a healthy happy life is much appreciated.
