Biography

Abeeda joined the Good Governance Institute (GGI) in June 2021 on a part time basis as a Consultant.

Abeeda holds a Master in Healthcare Governance degree from Loughborough University, holds a qualification as an Improvement Advisor from Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) and is a certified ISO31000 Lead Risk Manager

Abeeda is one of our consultants based in Doha, Qatar, where she relocated from UK where she implemented a comprehensive program in quality, patient safety and risk management in a greenfield site hospital. As well as establishing the governance and quality function, she helped create a culture of safety which, compared to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), ranked above international and regional results.

In previous roles, Abeeda set up the quality, risk and governance function at West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust for Medicine and Emergency Care Divisions. She specifically supported the divisions with the investigation of incidents and complaints, setting up and running the quality committees and supporting with risk management and delivering training in patient safety and risk management. At Barnet Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Abeeda worked with board members and management teams to establish processes and developed the Board Assurance Framework and established the risk management function across all directorates.

Prior to that Abeeda worked with Barnet Primary Care Trust, where she made marked improvements in the Trust’s information governance processes and was fundamental in helping move the Trust’s risk maturity rating in a positive direction by embedding a risk culture within the organisation.

Most recently, Abeeda has been involved in supporting clients at GGI from healthcare and charity sectors, dealing with detail as well as the bigger picture around quality governance and board reviews, drawing out and identifying opportunities for improvement to strengthen governance and risk functions.

Abeeda is passionate about ensuring that systems and processes in place not only work but are embraced by staff in order to ensure the safe delivery of care and services. She delivers this with her cheerful attitude and ability to process information quickly.
