Board

I have been at Drayton for 20 years. During this time I have worked with Broadland PCT, Norfolk PCT and North Norfolk CCG in a number of roles in commissioning. My aim is to ensure general practice remains sustainable and continues to provide excellent care to its patients. I want to develop NNPC to explore new ways of working among the local GPs and others health care providers.

I have a keen interest in using technology to promote self care and improving access to the appropriate clinician. By digitally enabling patients and making better use of IT, we will be able to provide a more efficient and responsive service for patients. This will release GP capacity to spend more time with the patients that have complex needs

Staff

From Gerry:
I joined the team in September 2017 not entirely knowing what to expect. Immediately I felt the excitement of being part of something different with the ability to deliver the outcomes and changes we need to move forward in Primary Care.

Our small team is full of energy and excitement, and so supportive of each other, you can see the difference happening. It’s like a jigsaw, the pieces are all fitting together. Working with many other interested parties gives challenges, but also positivity and we are channeling this energy into working together to move forwards quickly.

It is all hands on deck with everyone assisting each other to complete tasks and objectives with no two days the same, which makes coming to work a pleasure. The Team is already growing which makes the future inspiring. I believe NNPC’s reputation will grow quickly and everyone will want to be a part of it.
