Who we are

At TogetherBetter, we are a values driven bunch with some cracking expertise and track record.

Anna Lewis

Anna is an experienced Board director, consultant, accredited executive coach and mentor, and doctoral researcher. Her specific interests lie in strategic improvement, psychological safety and team-based working.

Anna worked for many years in NHS senior leadership roles, starting out as a graduate management trainee, learning the ropes through a series of operational and redesign roles in integrated health and social care settings, before becoming an executive director and now working as a non-executive director. She has a rare blend of expertise that is rooted in both evidence and practice, offering the theory and understanding the reality of leadership in complex environments.

Anna is motivated by a passion to improve quality in healthcare, through bringing knowledge and insights from other disciplines and exploring what they may have to offer better health and wellbeing. Known for asking the questions that others aren’t, she provokes new conversations in safe ways which stretch her colleagues to achieve better outcomes.

Julie Harries

Julie is expert in healthcare quality improvement and service redesign. After twenty years in operational leadership within NHS provider organisations, she became involved in QI in the early days of the NHS Modernisation Agency and held a series of national improvement roles, notably in coronary heart disease and patient safety. These roles drew on her skills in translating national policy into local delivery, navigating the way between politicians, policy advisors, clinicians, commissioners and providers. Her straightforward ability to get to the issue fast and negotiate a way through is well-known and highly valued.

Working with associates

We’re a collaborative consultancy and we bespoke our work to meet specific client needs. We also love to support others who share our values and mission. So that means we work with and as associates with trusted partners.

“A true understanding of the issues involved”

You have a grasp on the issues at this level that I am afraid I can’t even pretend to get close to.

Giving back

TogetherBetter is on a mission to make a positive impact in the world. We are always looking for opportunities to support organisations whose values align with ours, particularly those who have a close association with Wales, where we are based.

We are proud to support Welsh Women’s Aid as an organisational doner. You can read about their work here.

Anna has worked for over five years on a voluntary basis as a Board Trustee & Chair with Tempo Time Credits, while Julie volunteers with the Girlguides Association.

We get involved in annual fundraisers, like walking through lockdown for the Trussell Trust Food Banks and trekking to the top of Pen Y Fan in the Brecon Beacons for the Alzheimer’s Society.
