In 2019, Sarah moved to Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals as a team leader in ITU. Two years later in 2021, she was promoted to Deputy Matron.
Sarah is passionate about driving change where patients are at the heart of everything as well as promoting staff well-being in a holistic and compassionate manner.

Currently, Sarah is working with the group director of nursing for medicine to apply the Department of Health’s mouthcare matters initiative into intensive care. Her Trust has been working with this scheme over the last 12 months and Sarah developed an assessment tool which she is working towards being implemented in critical care and the wider Trust.
