After qualifying from St Georges in 1990 I served in the Army Medical Corps before leaving to join Regis Medical Centre as a GP partner in 1998. In the past 24 years I have held various roles including PEC chair and also been a PCT director. In 2011 my partners and I began the process of growing the partnership by a series of mergers to create YourHealth Partnership, a GP superpartnership delivering General Practice services to 45000 patients in a deprived piece of the West Midlands.
In 2019 we supported Sandwell West Birmingham Trust in taking on two APMS contracts thereby forming a single Primary Care Network. In April 2020 we formally vertically integrated our organisation into the acute trust just as the Pandemic took hold. I am excited about the opportunities ahead as we redesign care pathways to support the opening of the new Midland Metropolitan Hospital whilst ensuring that our patients receive the very best of care.
