Abeeda Ladha




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

Abeeda is based in Doha, Qatar, where, prior to starting with GGI she implemented a comprehensive program in quality, patient safety and risk management. 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 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.

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

In her spare time, Abeeda likes to relax by playing candy crush and during lockdown, has taken an interest in indoor plants which she has now mastered and these are now growing and thriving, having run a few PDSA (Plan, Do, Study Act) cycles on the plants.
