Katherine Saunders

Chief Executive, Alliance For Better Care (ABC) Ltd

Katherine has been chief executive of ABC GP Federation, covering 44 practices in East Surrey and North West Sussex, for the last two years of a 22-year career in the NHS. Starting as a graduate trainee, she worked in acute management before running her  own consultancy focusing on emergency care transformation in Trusts across London and the South East. It took her a while to understand that the real excitement is in primary care and not in hospital so she joined ABC and with her team has transformed a fledgling GP Federation into the key provider ready for the new post-commissioning world of local healthcare.
