About me

Ana Llewellyn is a GenerationQ Fellow and Divisional Nurse, Mental Health and Learning Disabilities, Aneurin Bevan University Health Board.

Ana leads a programme to remodel adult mental health inpatient and crisis services at Aneurin Bevan University Health Board and has led the development of a divisional quality and patient safety dashboard at the health board.

Ana’s earlier roles include being a senior nurse at Cwm Taf University Health Board from 2003 to 2015, in the Substance Misuse, and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, and being Mental Health Performance Improvement Manager at NHS Wales Delivery Unit.

Since 2016 she has been Divisional Nurse at Aneurin Bevan University Health Board, which provides health care to a population of 600,000 people. She is part of the leadership team of the mental health and learning disabilities division of the organisation.

Ana aspires to create a culture of quality improvement in the health board’s mental health and learning disabilities division and is interested in how she can facilitate that improvement through others rather than by leading improvement initiatives herself.

She is particularly interested in motivating others and system leadership: ‘Given my professional background, I am interested in people, psychology, motivation and I will bring this particular lens to the group thinking of the fellowship’.

She hopes that the range of components of the GenerationQ fellowship will further enhance her interest in system leadership and its potential to drive quality improvement. ‘I have a significant interest in coaching and ensuring that I lead in a way that maximises the potential in others. I believe that people are our greatest asset.’
