SCNAC CHAIR
Joanna Grant

Director Solutions in Healthcare & Non-exec Director In-Home Health Group

Joanna has a wide-ranging background in both the NHS and the Independent sector.

Choosing to work in the community early in her nursing career, she has worked in a variety of settings, including schools, community nursing and Continuing Care. During her years spent in community care, Joanna has worked with several independent providers working to improve the level of care received by people in their own homes.

More recently, Joanna was a Chief Nurse in a large corporation providing homecare across the UK. She held the overall responsibility for clinical governance and operations as well as being the nominated individual for the Care Quality Commission. At present, she works as a consultant advisor to those working with children, young people and adults in the places where they live and work which can include hospices, residential homes/schools/colleges, assisted living, secure settings and family houses.

Joanna is passionate about supporting people to achieve their chosen goals whilst remaining in their preferred environment, whether this is funded by health and/or social care. She supports nurse-led care, especially for those with complex needs and has been asked to speak on this subject a number of times, including at the Care Show and for the Homecare Association.

Most importantly, Joanna is an advocate for those people who need care at home and for the nurses and carers who provide this.
