I was Practice Manager of the first practice to join NCPC in August 2019. After many months of planning it was both a relief and exciting to be part of a new and innovative model for General Practice. As NCPC has grown we have begun to see the many advantages and opportunities that a collaborative and supportive model can bring to practices and the individuals working within. It feels as if we have only just begun to explore the opportunities now available to us.
I am enjoying the challenge of getting to know a new team as Carlisle Locality Lead. My background is in HR and I am delighted to be leading in the areas of HR and Workforce Development. There is much that we can learn from other industries as well as the expertise and talent in our own organisation. With exciting plans to recruit great new employees and develop and grow our current staff we will, together, build great teams across all of our locations and continue to meet the health needs of the population of Cumbria. My hope for NCPC is that we build a robust framework to support multiple practices, whilst delivering a very local and responsive service.
