We welcome Jemima Burnage
Community Integrated Care is delighted to today welcome Jemima Burnage as our charity’s new Chief Quality & Risk Officer.
With over two decades of experience working within Quality, Governance and Safeguarding, Jemima joins our charity from the Care Quality Commission (CQC), where she held the role of Deputy Director of Mental Health in England.
Jemima’s previous experience includes working closely with the Department of Health and Social Care and roles at Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust, where she developed expertise across a wide range of service types and provision.
Jemima takes the reins from Carolyn McConnell, who will be retiring next month after five years with Community Integrated Care.
Speaking of Jemima’s appointment, Jim Kane said: “We’re thrilled with Jemima’s appointment, and look forward to the breadth and depth of expertise she will bring to the role. Jemima’s passion, values, and drive to make a positive difference shine through. She’s demonstrated a deep understanding of who we are and what makes us special, and I’m confident this she’ll make a huge impact at Community Integrated Care.”
On her appointment, Jemima shared: “Throughout the past nine years at the Care Quality Commission, I’ve witnessed the incredible impact that good regulation can have within social care; improving the lives of people supported, their families, and those that work in the sector. I’m now looking forward to a new challenge, where I can combine my passion for continuously improving the quality of services, with my experience of working with frontline teams to deliver the very best outcomes.”
She continued, “I’m delighted to join such a vibrant, values-led organisation, with a vision aligned so closely to my own – enabling people with care needs to lead independent, happy, and fulfilled lives. So much great work has already been achieved by the charity’s Quality team, including amplifying the voice of people supported, and I’m looking forward to building on this momentum and playing my part in truly enabling people to live their best lives possible.”
