Alison Meadows has been elected as a public governor for North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, which oversees the running of Hinchingbrooke, Peterborough City and Stamford and Rutland Hospitals.
Alison will join the Foundation Trust’s Council of Governors and will represent members living in the Huntingdonshire constituency.
Trust chairman Rob Hughes, said: “On behalf of our Council of Governors and the Trust Board of Directors, I would like to extend our congratulations to Alison on being elected to the Council of Governors. We look forward to working with her in 2018. Alison was successful following an election held among our Foundation Trust members living in the Huntingdonshire area in December 2017. Thank you to all those members who took the time to vote.”
Alison said: “I have worked in the NHS and Public Health over the last five years and seen first-hand the challenges the NHS faces financially and in tackling increased demand. This is an exciting opportunity for me to play a part in the new Trust. I am a strong believer in giving something back and feel this is a good opportunity to get involved.
With funding from Innovate UK, Priority Digital Health is carrying out a feasibility study for our digital screening and demand-management tool priority.you, to enable GP practices to triage patients into — or out of — practices safely and effectively according to need.While acting as a gatekeeper for appointment bookings, priority.you will not be designed to turn people away. For those who could be supported elsewhere, it will offer a range of targeted self-care, social prescribing and community healthcare services as alternative options.
ABOUT THE STUDY
Collaborating with GP surgeries, CCGs and research organisations as well as Health Enterprise East we aim to analyse and evaluate the full potential of priority.you. We are still inviting interested parties to be involved with our study. Please get in touch if you would like to learn more.
Priority Digital Health have been awarded a grant by Innovate UK as part of the Digital Health Technology Catalyst 2017.
