Divisional People Leads

The People Services Team are pleased to be able to announce the launch of the final aspect of our new service;  a dedicated senior HR professional aligned to each Divisional or Corporate Senior Management Team.


Previously known as ‘POEMs’, our new ‘Divisional People Leads’ (‘DPLs’), will lead on all things ‘people’ for their allocated areas.  Their priorities will be:

  • To support the Division in achievement of its People KPIs
  • To be the ‘go to’ People Services rep for the areas in their portfolio; able to commission the other People Services teams to respond to your HR needs
  • To lead on the people aspects of business development for their allocated area (such as tendering, management of change, TUPE, etc)
  • To act upon the findings of the national Staff Survey and the Pulse Checks for their areas
  • To coach and support leaders in their area


This new aspect of our service will launch from 1st September..


The Divisional People Leads are as follows:


Health, Wellbeing & Inclusion Divisions, plus all Corporate areas – Hazel Walker (07917053453)

Integrated Community Services – Leyna Firman (07881257236) and Susan Spray (07880 885 306)

Planned Care and Specialist Services – Garry Southall (07917 464054)


Garry and Susan are new members of the team and they can’t wait to get started in their new roles.  I know we will give them a great DCHS welcome!


Remember, in addition to the ‘DPLs’, the People Services Team run a whole host of services available to help you with your HR needs, from recruitment to temporary staffing, to training and everything in between!!  We have included their contact details below as a reminder:
