Sam's Bio

Sam will be taking over from Tim in April this year. Sam has worked as a consultant in intensive care and acute medicine in Plymouth since 2007. He has been clinical lead for acute medicine and, since 2013, Clinical Director of the intensive care unit at University Hospitals Plymouth. Sam has always had great interest in developing and delivering high quality services and developing and nurturing the workforce. He is very keen that the Network should work with all the units across the region and the other networks to share our solutions and best practice. Delivering intensive care to the highest standards is very challenging in the health economy at present and we need to be innovative and thoughtful about how we drive standards up further and develop important new initiatives in intensive care, especially around long term outcomes and rehabilitation of our patients. The best ideas come from the clinical staff working with patients and Sam is very keen to listen to these on his visits to the units and our regional meetings.
