The latest move to this end has seen Broadstone recruit Sharon Harwood-Davis as a client consulting director. As a healthcare specialist, including in Healthcare Trusts, Harwood-Davis’ passion lies in consulting with clients to create proactive and measurable strategies to promote employee engagement and wellbeing – something which is increasingly important, as the mounting NHS crisis sees waiting lists climb to a record high of 7.33 million.

Speaking on her new challenge, Harwood-Davis said, “It is a critical time to be working in the sector given the pressures on the NHS and employers. Now more than ever businesses need proactive strategies to support the health and wellbeing of their workforce keeping them fit, engaged and productive.”

With over 20 years of sector experience with particular expertise in the corporate healthcare and healthcare trust market, Harwood-Davis arrives from her most recent engagement with Big Four firm PwC. She previously also held senior positions at Mercer and JLT.

Brett Hill, Head of Health & Protection at Broadstone, said: “Sharon’s experience in the Healthcare Trust space will be particularly valuable in supporting our growth strategy, given the rapid growth this market has seen over the past decade. This will enable us to continue delivering the high-quality independent advice that Broadstone prides itself on.”
