I have overall responsibility for Xyla Health & Wellbeing, and I’m experienced in developing an expert team who are person-centred and committed to delivering a quality service.

My previous experience includes growing a number of businesses in an effective and sustainable way, with employee engagement and a focus on client relationships being the key to success.

Megan Baird

Operations Director

I have worked in the health & wellbeing industry for over nine years and worked closely with Emily Cummins for a number of these years to effectively implement services on an international, national and local scale.

Working with the Xyla Health & Wellbeing operational team, I’ve ensured the delivery of the NHS, CCG and corporate programmes are mobilised efficiently and effectively. In addition to this, I works extensively with external partners and internal teams to take a holistic approach to service management with the ultimate driver being underpinned by service user experience and outcomes.
