Cyd Akrill

Head of Operations
Springfield Healthcare
I qualified as a nurse in 1983, working in the NHS, later moving to the private sector. Having worked in many areas of specialism my passion has remained caring and supporting people who experience poor mental health and the field of learning disability. I think I have had every position going from cadet nurse to ward manager and now I am the nominated individual and Director of Operations for a private company. My greatest achievements are receiving the MBE from the Queen in 2015 awarded for my services to nursing and taking 84 people with complex health needs on a holiday. Every day I try to walk the extra mile, there are varying degrees of traffic on it!
