About Me

Amanda joined Cardiff and Vale University Health Board as a graduate in September 1997 and has since held various management roles across the Surgery Clinical Board including 13 years within the Trauma and Orthopaedic Directorate as Deputy / Interim Directorate Manager. 

It was while in this role, that Amanda started to take a keen interest in PROMs and introduced a standardized department wide collection within the hip and knee specialities.  This included designing a process whereby PROMs could be used to inform a virtual/remote assessment following hip or knee arthroplasty surgery, successfully implementing a 95% reduction in face to face follow up demand. This approach has since been recommended by the Welsh Government and is currently being rolled out across Wales.

Amanda joined the PROMs, PREMs and Effectiveness Programme in September 2016, which later became integrated with the national Value in Health Programme. Amanda is focused on delivering consistent outcome capture and reporting mechanisms to support an outcome-driven “healthier Wales”.
