Saffron Steer’s work and behaviours are grounded in our values of simplicity, trust and humility. Our purpose is to ‘make you dateable‘.
Saffron Steer works on an associate-network model. We pull in senior expertise from our wide network in healthcare and build the team that is right for our clients’ needs. Having very senior people in their fields working on projects is another differentiator for Saffron Steer. Their expertise augment the others in the team, and their seniority means they have the authority to make decisions with the client. This in turn means that projects are moved forward at pace.
The team is led by Michael Barker, a Consultant Physiotherapist by background and Imperial College Business School MBA who founded Saffron Steer in 2011.
When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, Michael jumped back into a clinical leadership role where he led the Physio Service for NHS Nightingale Hospital in London. He is currently engaged in a national programme with the Department of Health and Social Care leading on the roll out of LAMP (saliva testing) as part of Test and Trace.
