Leading the charge towards patient empowerment – James Sanderson

I’ve recently joined NHS England as the Director of Personalisation and Choice, bringing together the teams who have been responsible for Personal Health Budgets (PHBs), Integrated Personal Commissioning (IPC) and Patient Choice.

I was previously the Chief Executive of the Independent Living Fund, which supported disabled people to live independently with choice and control over their lives.  This is an agenda which I am passionate about and I’m delighted to be working with people who share the same determination to make our health service ‘person centred’ with real choice being offered to patients.
