I feel the breadth of my geographical & personal experience is relevant, as I appreciate some of the difficulties we face in being able to understand each other’s differing viewpoints.
At Barts I have been instrumental in setting up a physiologist-delivered ACHD device clinic, & have strongly supported my physiologist friends & colleagues in furthering their training & careers. For the last 2 years, I have successfully brought together EP Consultants from across the country with an interest in ACHD, to a highly successful annual working group meeting (BiCCEP).
I am not afraid to advocate for those less able & feel strongly about bringing change where necessary.
My BHRS aspirations are for it to:
- Understand how to make its work relevant to the widest EP community
- Strengthen ties between organisations & improve integration, e.g. an extended nursing body, sub-speciality groups, e.g. ACHD. Identify barriers if connections are not flourishing
- Recognise regional variations in engagement & how this can be improved
- Acknowledge & positively challenge subconscious biases across all spheres of our work
I believe this will allow us to work most effectively , harmoniously & bring the greatest satisfaction from the work of the BHRS to staff & patients alike.”
