Joe Roberts




Joe is a GGI consultant working primarily in the north of England. He has a particular interest in risk management and quality assurance in healthcare.

Since joining GGI, Joe has developed board assurance frameworks and risk management systems, led clinical governance reviews for NHS trusts, and devised and delivered training programmes for staff at all levels, from the board to the ward. He has also participated in well-led reviews and investigations.

Joe’s style is thorough, detailed and evidence-based, but also is known for his pragmatic, ‘plain English’ approach to governance. His philosophy is that we need to make the right thing to do the obvious and straightforward thing to do.

Before joining GGI, Joe was head of assurance for a major acute hospital trust in the North West, where he also oversaw the legal services and clinical audit teams. He also has experience of human resources and organisational development, having worked on the development of a workforce strategy and planning process, and managed the trust’s employee wellbeing services while on secondment during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Joe began his career in finance, training as an accountant with one of the big four audit firms. Away from work, he served for ten years as a councillor in local government, chairing the council’s audit and risk committee. He recently became a trustee of a local mental health charity.

Joe has a master’s degree in business administration from Liverpool John Moores University, a bachelor’s degree in government from the London School of Economics, and a professional accountancy qualification.
