I am a full time GP in Kettering, Northamptonshire. In addition to this I also work as a Forensic Physician for Northamptonshire Police
I have been using SystmOne for around 10 years, being one of the first practices in Northamptonshire to switch to S1. The Northamptonshire Forensic Physicians are also piloting using S1 in the custody suites which has led to improvements in patient safety as medical histories are now available (with the patients permission) so that nothing significant is overlooked.
What is good about being on committee – This has given me the chance to see the bigger picture of S1 rather than just the GP perspective. It has also allowed me to pilot new elements of SystmOne to allow some user input into how the system evolves. Working with a great bunch of people, we have a great sense of camaraderie especially around the time of the annual conference!
Hobbies/pastimes – I have two young children who keep me extremely busy during my time away from work and so have very little time for any particular hobbies but would like to spend more time practising photography.
