Alisons’ career in healthcare began in nursing over 35 years ago where her passion for person centred care was born. Her next venture took her into the world of commerce where she developed the skills and tools to support meaningful and sustainable change, as well as gaining valuable experience in the introduction and scaling up of new healthcare innovations.
Over the last 4 years she has worked tirelessly in the development and delivery of the UK based group consultations model. This work has involved collaboration with patients, national and international thought leaders and resulted in the current learning and development support model. To date Alison and her team have worked with over 400 organisations to train, coach and support teams to develop and deliver care in this way.
She passionately believes that Group Consultations (shared medical appointments) are a ‘real game changer’ for the NHS - patients, clinicians and the system!
She is currently working in collaboration with the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine (BSLM) to spread and scale up group consultations throughout the UK.
