Biography

I am currently providing some external communications support to the Scottish Government's Technology Enabled Care Team.  This is to support the scaling up of Near Me - the platform which delivers remote video consultations. In May the number of consultations went from 300 to 14,000 per week and have just passed the 100,000 milestone.

More generally I am a senior programme manager, communications, and engagement specialist with executive-level experience of delivering quality improvement, transformational, and cultural change across health and social care sectors. My experience includes the application of quality improvement methodologies and leading public consultations. I am an accredited LEAN Leader, Associate of the Consultation Institute and co-author of Handbook of Integrated Care: Case Study- Scotland.
