Surrey County Council announced today that Sarah Mitchell, Strategic Director of Adult Social Care, has left the council.
Sarah has made a very significant contribution to both the transformation of health and social care and the delivery of efficiencies in Surrey since her appointment in March 2009. The decision has been made for personal reasons and by mutual consent.
David Hodge, Leader of the council, said: “Sarah has personally led a transformation in the way that adult social care is offered in Surrey and is widely respected and admired for her approach to partnership working. I would like to thank Sarah personally and on behalf of the council for all she has done for Surrey. We will miss her.”
Sarah Mitchell said: “I have been proud to work for Surrey for the last five years. I wish the council and colleagues in the NHS and the voluntary and independent sector the very best for the future and I thank my staff for all their tremendous hard work and commitment over recent years.”
Sarah left on 31 December 2013.
