Developing remote, high-quality, person-centred care in Primary Care

My Topol fellowship problem / project:

As a Topol Digital Fellow I will explore how digital solutions, such as video conferencing, could be used to deliver high-quality, person-centred, patient care in Primary Care without in-person contact. And, how we might continue to deliver training and support for the next generation of General Practice nurses who will be working in Covid-19 and post Covid-19 environments where in-person contact might not be possible, desirable or needed.

I’m an experienced General Practice Nurse (GPN), Queens Nurse, and Cancer Care Champion. I strongly believe in person-centred care and have spent many years honing my ability to build trust-based relationships with people from different cultures, age-groups, backgrounds and with diverse needs. I am also the Nursing Clinical Lead for an NHS England Enhanced Training Hub, with responsibility for the recruitment of student nurses into Primary Care and the retention of practice nurses.
