I've been working in the NHS for 19years, since graduating from the University of London with an honours degree in Psychology. My NHS career began with supporting quality improvement projects, first in the community with GPs and then with acute and outpatient services at Frimley Park. In 2013 I transitioned from project management to organisational development.
In my current role I am thrilled to be part of the Improvement Advisor team, within the ELFT QI department. It's an amazing place to work. In particular I support these mental health Specialist Services - Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS, across East London and Bedfordshire), Specialist Children and Young People's Services (SCYPS, in Newham), Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT, in Bedfordshire, Tower Hamlets, Newham and Richmond). I also support our Enjoying Work learning system and passionately advocate for service user engagement in QI.
