I have had wide exposure to European and US clinical informatics through workshops and symposia.I was the UK lead investigator on an NIH Clinical Research Roadmap project (The Electronic Primary Care Research Network.

We are a relatively unique GP Practice, delivering our services in partnership with Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust. This collaboration has helped to sustain the delivery of primary care in Gosport to over 36000 of our residents. From the Better Local Care MCP Vanguard through to the development of Primary Care Networks, we have continued to transform our services in response to the needs of both our patients and staff, developing new models of care delivered by multi-disciplinary teams. I am passionate about working in collaboration with our partners in health, social care and education, our patients and our voluntary organisations to provide holistic care and support. I am the Clinical Director for Gosport Central PCN, and have worked in roles as the Clinical Director for our SHFT services in Portsmouth and the Southeast, incorporating Mental Health, Physical Health, Palliative Care and our Community Services, and more recently as the Clinical Director for Primary Care Development across SHFT, supporting our transformation programmes and partnership working with Primary Care.
