Julia Whyard

Senior Consultant

Julia brings extensive experience of working in business planning and development roles across the public, voluntary and commercial sectors including an NHS foundation trust, a social sciences institute and a European network of financial advisors.

After working as consultancy projects manager at Oxford Brookes University – where she developed and supported significant changes in knowledge transfer activities – Julia joined IPC in 2006. She has led and delivered a range of projects across adults’ services including the development of integrated locality teams to support vulnerable older people at risk of hospital admission, workforce development programmes to facilitate cultural change, reviews of quality assurance arrangements, and tools for national residential care providers.

Julia’s particular interests lie in training and support to enable practitioners to overcome the everyday challenges of working across traditional professional and organisational boundaries. She is skilled at developing robust quality assurance arrangements in the care of vulnerable older people, reducing complexity and duplication, and thus giving staff more time to provide compassionate care.
