His commitment is clearly evident from his work in health and social care at local, regional and national levels, including for TLAP and the National Market Development Forum. Sam's ability to work with different groups to forge consensus across a wide range of issues will be a valuable asset to the Partnership."
Sam said: "It is an honour to take on this important role. I can think of no better place to be to shape and support this crucial phase of social care transformation. As a genuinely sector-led Partnership that brings together a diversity of talents and perspectives, I have no doubt that TLAP will continue as a force for positive change in the sector. I welcome the challenge of working with the Partnership and all its members to drive forward the vision of personalisation and community-based support."
