We were joined by Ursula Montgomery, who recently joined the primary care directorate at NHS England as a Senior Clinical Advisor. She has had a varied and interesting career – prior to joining NHS England, Ursula was Clinical Chair of East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning group.

Ursula has held a range of positions within health care including Associate Medical Director at University Hospitals of Leicester, a GP partner in Leicestershire and chair of Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland Integrated Community board. These roles have supported teams across primary, community and acute settings in the NHS to transform care for patients. Ursula was recently awarded a Senior Fellowship of the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management (FMLM)

Early on in her career, Ursula gained exposure to quality improvement through working with practices who needed caretaking. There were invaluable lessons she learned during this time about change management which have had a lasting impact on her – and have influenced her leadership style.
