National Primary Care Programme Manager for 1000Lives. Interested in primary care safety, complexity and communities of practice.

Pharmacist by background so also interested in using QI techniques to improve the use of medicines and to reduce antimicrobial resistance. Previously worked in Welsh Government, has been a Head of Pharmacy and Medicines Management, CEO of Community Pharmacy Wales and Director for Wales for the Royal Pharmaceutical Society.

My change of career and current interests came about in large measure to my participation in the Health Foundation's 'Generation Q' programme.

Q Exchange ideas

  • Repeat Prescribing – re-design through co-design

    Repeat prescriptions account for 80% of prescriptions. The system is inherent with failure demand. We want to develop toolkits to support practices improve their own systems through self-analysis and co-design.
