Linda Whalley

I joined AFG’s Board of Trustees in January 2018, and I am also a member of the Audit and Risk Committee.

I have spent all of my working life in local government, housing services and the NHS. Most recently, I was Director of Strategy and Policy at NHS Digital (the technology and data partner for health and care services). This role enabled me to be involved in many significant policy developments in health and social care. As a result, I have a good insight into the way organisations like AFG need to adapt to changing circumstances and challenges.

I am now starting a new phase of my career as an independent consultant. I am struck by the importance of the work of AFG, and the impact it makes to people’s lives.  I am keen to use the knowledge and skills I have developed in my career to support AFG to build on its reputation as an effective and responsive organisation.

I am also looking forward to having more time to catch up on my favourite hobbies and exercise.
