Sarah is an experienced Board Director, having been appointed to the Karitane Board and the St Vincent’s Clinic Board before this. She is also a consumer advisor for NSLHD. Sarah has over 14 years of experience working to improve Australia’s health and aged care sector, including four years as an independent consultant. Before that, Sarah worked in management roles for NSW Health and HammondCare and was a sessional academic for Western Sydney University.  

“I blend my personal and professional experience to drive the delivery of person-centred care for improving the health, wellbeing and quality of life for people of the Northern Sydney region’, said Barter. 

Sarah is passionate about partnering with consumers and communities to codesign and deliver better care and services for the population. She is particularly interested in designing strong governance and quality, safety, and risk management systems.
