Special Professional interests

• Diabetes: I keenly pursued a special interest in the clinical field of Diabetes after being qualified as an independent General Practitioner in 2003. I subsequently successfully acquired a diploma in Diabetes from the prestigious Warwick University in the UK in 2005. Since then I have been running a dedicated weekly diabetes clinic in my surgery providing all aspects of Diabetes care including insulin initiation. I am currently a Clinical Director of Diabetes and Endocrinology at NHS Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group.
• Teaching and Training: I have an intrinsic interest in teaching and training. Effective teaching that results in trainee’s learning has been and remains my highest priority. Being a GP trainer has been a high priority in my career. This is a role I strongly am committed to and will continue to pursue. This has allowed me to develop effective teaching methods and objective assessment which are then tailored to the individual trainee’s need. This aspect of my career started in 2005 when I was involved in supervising the nurse practitioner course from the Bolton University. Following this I successfully completed the Basic Trainers Course. I have been a supervisor for FY2 doctors and GPST1/2 trainees for six years and an accredited GP trainer for about four years. I also successfully obtained a Post Graduate Diploma in GP Education from Manchester University in 2010.. In addition to imparting knowledge, I feel my main role is to facilitate learning and stimulate both reflective thinking as well as critical thinking. I have been actively involved in the North Western GP recruitment programme as a GP assessor for the last 4 years. I have also been a GP Training Lead at the OOH Services – GTD Urgent Care for the last three years. My main role there is to help with all aspect of OOH requirements GPST training and facilitate training in the effective delivery of RCGP curriculum.
• Clinical Governance: I am passionate about ensuring everything that helps to maintain and improve high standards of patient care. I have been heavily involved in supporting the Governance Structure not only at my own practice where I am a Clinical Governance lead but also the other NHS organisations such as Oldham PCT (not NHS Oldham CCG), GoToDoc Urgent Care, NHS Manchester, etc. I have developed the skills to lead the development and implementation of a system of Clinical Governance as part of an integrated organisational governance framework and to promote a patient-centred, learning culture across all services provided by an organisation. I have experience of working as a clinical lead for management and resolution of complaints and incidents and then provide recommendations to the Executives and Board for improvement actions arising from reviews of complaints/incidents. I am also able to ensure investigation techniques are timely, rigorous in identifying root causes and learning-centred and authorise responses and resolution arrangements.
