I am the Project Manager for the Hub’s work on HEE‘s Place-Based Placement Pilot. My role involves working with the Hub’s Associate Director of Workforce Development (Jason Brooke), other members of the Hub, HEIs, and the primary, community and social care sectors to bring about effective change in non-medical placements, in line with the NHS long-term plan.
I’ve over ten years NHS experience varying from Service Desk Analyst, Information Governance Officer, Business Intelligence Analyst, Systems Analyst, and many years ago, as a HCA. My experience spans IT, sales, healthcare and entrepreneurial endeavours, like property development. I also have a keen interest in social consciousness with a focus on homelessness and improving lives, hence my pursuance of a PHD in said topic.
These challenging times call for a different way, and the placement landscape is also challenged and seeks a new approach — a placed-based, integrated approach, with transformational change, which I am keen to explore.
