Director of Investigations

Philippa Styles, Director of Investigations at the Health Services Safety Investigations Body (HSSIB).

Philippa joined the Health Services Safety Investigations Body (HSSIB) in November 2023. A paramedic by background, she has worked in the NHS for more than 20 years. Philippa is passionate about patient care, learning and development, and equality, diversity and inclusion. She brings operational, strategic, regulatory and clinical experience to our organisation.

She’s previously held senior leadership roles at the Care Quality Commission and most recently was the Director of Operational Delivery in a community healthcare organisation. Philippa seeks to continually grow as a healthcare leader and has successfully completed a master’s in healthcare leadership. She recently completed the Nye Bevan Programme for executive leaders in the NHS and believes compassionate, inclusive leadership supports everyone in the NHS to put patients and their safety at the heart of all we do.

Outside of her role at HSSIB, Philippa lives in Leicestershire with her wife enjoying time in the countryside with their Labradors and also feels privileged to be a Justice of the Peace sitting as a magistrate in family court in a voluntary role.

Philippa ensures that we continue to build diverse, highly skilled teams and deliver on our organisational vision, keeping our values at the forefront of our work.
