I am a GP in inner city Manchester, and a catalyst for transformation and improvement in healthcare. I have a background in researching and leading quality improvement. Over the last decade, I have been at the forefront of national NHS policy for integrated care, primary care transformation and improvement leadership. I am passionate about supporting leaders and teams to improve what they do without working harder. I am interested both in small and large scale change.

Some highlights of my career so far:

  • I have led service change in my own team and across Manchester, and helped catalyse partnership working in Manchester between the NHS and local government for public health.
  • At the University of Manchester, I worked in the National Primary Care Research & Development Centre. My research focused on staff wellbeing, quality of care and patient safety, using both qualitative and quantitative methods. I helped establish a new system of research governance in the University.
  • At the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement I helped create and deliver innovative new QI programmes for general practice, improving safety, quality and productivity. I advised the government on integrated care as part of the NHS Future Forum, and supported NHS England to create the support and assessment framework for clinical commissioning groups (CCGs).
  • At the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) I led developments in the programme for practice accreditation, and established the RCGP Centre for Commissioning. 
  • At NHS England I contributed to the NHS Five Year Forward, the General Practice Forward View and the NHS Long Term Plan. I established Time for Care, one of the world’s largest primary care innovation programmes, overseeing new investment of £130m.

I regularly speak at regional, national and international conferences about leading change and healthcare improvement, and have provided training for staff from over 15 countries. I have served on the boards of two charities, helping both to significantly grow their reach and impact. I have led teams of up to 120 volunteers and still serve my local church regularly.
