Ruth Lewis (2000-2003)

Ruth Lewis, HSMC (2000-2003)I was at HSMC from 2000-2003 on the NHS Management Training Scheme and I then completed my MSc on partnership working, supervised by Jon Glasby. Also, when I worked at the NHS Confederation, I undertook a piece of work with Jon on delayed discharges in mental health providers.

Since leaving HSMC I have worked in the NHS, at the NHS Confederation, Department of Health and Prime Minister's Delivery Unit. I am now a freelance project manager. I am currently working on policy research and analysis.

I learnt an incredible amount about health and social care while at HSMC and found the lecturers to be supportive, challenging and professional. I also have fond memories of being buried under books in the library and enjoying the sunshine in the beautiful grounds.
