BECAUSE WE ALL GET BETTER WITH BETTER CONVERSATIONS
 

The focus

How can we improve the PATIENT-DOCTOR encounter supported through tech?

Since qualifying as a GP in 2014 I have been drawn to this deceptively simple question & dedicated much of my time to starting to formulate a response.

 

My clinical work as a GP partner has been complemented by a diverse range of roles and collaboration spanning policy, digital & innovation incorporating Royal Colleges & multinational corporates, start-ups & NHS Digital, European Patients' Forum & Digital Health Europe.

 

I’ve gained insights into how we can make use of the precious time together better, equipping clinicians and patients alike with the information & tools they need. This leads naturally to transformative change improving both quality and efficiency.
