Clinical Leadership

Kingfisher PCN has strong clinical representation with an elected Lead GP from each member practice representing their practice and forming the core membership of the Kingfisher PCN Board. The Kingfisher PCN Board is the key decision maker in terms of driving meaningful change. Kingfisher PCN has a wealth of overarching clinical leadership; provided by 2 Clinical Directors – Dr Rich Burling and Dr Jonathan Wells.

"Mamma mia, here i go again!

So, alas, the summer is nearing a close but despair not, Abba mania is soon to be with us as, for the first time in 40 years the Swedish Popsters are performing again. This prompted me to google their ages and three are over 75. As we assemble our Frailty Team it's important we focus on suporting our patients to 'age well' by creating a shift to prevention and proactive care. We should as a system be talking social isolation and promoting age friendly communities. Ageing well means staying well and although Reddicth may not produce a septuagenarian pop quartet, it would be nice to think we are doing our best to ensure we optimise the qaulity of life for our older population.

The measure of course will be how many can still get on the dance floor to Dancing Queen


Kingfisher PCN Board membership also includes Practice Managers and PCN Management.
