Person-Centred Care Network

We have appointed a Clinical Champion, a Clinical Support Fellow and seven Regional Clinical Leads to find out how person-centred care is making a difference across England. They are supported by an online Network of Champions open to clinicians passionate about delivering person-centred care in their practice and their region.

Person-Centred Care Network of Champions

This online network brings together GPs, primary care colleagues and people with lived experience across the four nations who share an enthusiasm for person-centred approaches to health and well-being. The network aims to:

  • promote person-centred care approaches in members' own localities
  • feed into national pieces of work (for example, through consultations) and be the RCGP's voice for person-centred care
  • meet twice per year to plan strategy, and explore good work being carried out across the country to highlight through the project.

Find out more about the joining criteria for the person-centred care network of champions.

For further information, please contact personcentredcare@rcgp.org.uk.

Person-Centred Care Regional Events

In the coming months, we will be holding seven regional events to bring together healthcare professionals with expertise and/or interest in person-centred care approaches.

These events will be advertised on this page and through the Network of Champions.

To register your interest in attending a regional event, please email personcentredcare@rcgp.org.uk 

Person-Centred Care Clinicians

Ben Milton

Ben Milton - Person-Centred Care Clinical Champion

I am a dedicated clinician and enthusiastic leader with experience as a CCG Chair and now a PCN Clinical Director. I am passionate about making a difference in health care from the individual person to population wide health. I’m always keen to challenge the status quo and am a champion of genuine patient-centred care as the only way to deliver great health care in the 21st Century. Complimented for my empathic style with my patients I am interested in using a coaching approach in all aspects of my work, aiming to get the best from everyone I work with. 

 

Anthony James

Anthony James - Person-Centred Care Clinical Support Fellow

I am a GP trainee in North London and Chair of the RCGP’s Trainee Community. I sit on my local Faculty board of North and West London as AiT Rep, Joint Honorary Secretary and LGBT+ spokesperson and am a member of the RCGP LGBT+ steering group. Outside of the RCGP I am co-organiser of TEDxNHS and health adviser at PinkNews, an LGBT+ media company.
My interest in person-centred care initially began through my work at TEDxNHS, where many former speakers have been champions of the value that a personalised approach to care can add.

Gwyn Elias

Gwyn Elias - Regional Clinical Lead, North East & Yorkshire

I have experience in working across organisational boundaries in order to improve complex problems. I enjoy collaborating and using my skills in improvement tools to improve services, health outcomes and quality of life for people.
In my role as Regional Clinical Lead for Person-Centred Care, I hope to be able to connect to colleagues and support them in managing people with multiple long-term conditions. I want to connect with citizens around how they can have a different conversation with professionals in order for their care to be structured around their individual needs.

 

Claire Baker - Regional Clinical Lead, North West

I have worked in a number of primary care settings over the last twenty years, both in rural and deprived populations, and became a partner two years ago. Locally, the Year of Care approach has transformed diabetic care, which along with a visit to Frome kindled my interest in person-centred care. We developed a wellbeing service for patients with chronic disease locally four years ago; the stories and results are inspiring, however it requires initial engagement with primary care for referral. Moving to the Community Connector model without the need for initial clinical contact remains the ultimate goal.

 

Mohan Chandan

Mohan Chandan - Regional Clinical Lead, Midlands 

I am a GP with extended role in respiratory medicine; I lead a community respiratory service in Birmingham. As well as respiratory medicine, I have experience in lifestyle medicine, social prescribing and person-centred care. I have  run a successful lifestyle medicine clinic in inner-city Birmingham focused around the question “what matters to you?” and continue to provide group consultations for people with lifestyle-related illness. I am passionate about prioritising kindness and compassion in healthcare systems and conversations, health coaching and reducing the impact of socio-economic inequality.

 

Dean Dorsett

Dean Dorsett - Regional Clinical Lead, East of England

I have experience in A&E, as a forensic medical examiner and 10+ years as a family physician. I now train non-GP practitioners to deliver innovative models of care.  At my surgery I lead on diabetes, care homes and the frail and house bound, dementia and obesity. I sit on the Governing Body Executive of the CCG. I am passionate about Social Prescribing, lifestyle medicine and prevention; I specifically support a passionate team working with voluntary, statutory and private partners across the system to facilitate development of a social prescribing strategy and plan scaled across the whole of Ipswich and East Suffolk, delivered by the voluntary sector.

 

Mohan Sekeram - Regional Clinical Lead, London

I am the Clinical Lead for Social Prescribing for Merton and Wandsworth CCGs. I have been working as a GP for over 10 years in East Merton. I led on the development and implantation of the Merton Model of Social Prescribing which aims to address the social determinants of health. This model has resulted in significant reductions in GP and Accident and Emergency attendances, and has demonstrated a positive impact on patient measures of wellbeing. I am passionate about harnessing the opportunities in the local community. I am also a member of Merton LMC and a GP trainer.

I hope to bring patients and health professionals together to learn about person-centred care, group consultations and evidence-based lifestyle interventions.
