This talk is aimed at students and staff at the College of Medical and Dental Sciences, but all are welcome. This event looks at leadership roles within primary care, as many events and conferences tend to focus on leadership within a hospital setting.

We have three speakers who will share their different experiences of leadership in primary care:

  • Dr Pete Thebridge has been a GP Partner at Omnia Practice in Bordesley Green since 1985. He has been involved in commissioning for many years having been professional executive committee Chair of Birmingham East and North Primary Care Trust. He is clinical Vice Chair of the Governing Body, he chairs the LCN Chairs committee and sits on the finance and performance, quality and safety and public involvement and participation committees.
  • Dr Sabena Jameel is a Birmingham GP. She has a Master’s Degree in Medical Education and is currently undertaking PhD studies at Birmingham University School of Education, looking at character education and professional virtues.
  • Dr Jameel is also an Associate Dean for GP Education at Health Education England, covering Birmingham and Solihull, where she has responsibilities for Foundation training doctors who work in GP posts across the West Midlands. Prior to this she was a Training Programme Director for the North Birmingham GP training scheme.

Dr Robin Miller will be chairing the event and sharing his views on leadership in primary care. Robin is a Senior Fellow and Director of Evaluation at the Health Services Management Centre. He is the current Joint Editor in Chief of the International Journal of Integrated Care and Co-Editor of the Journal of Integrated Care. He leads on a variety of applied research projects within health and care, with a particular focus on evaluating and learning from change initiatives. Prior to his academic career Robin was a practitioner, manager and commissioner, and has served as a non-executive director and chair of trustees within housing and charitable sectors.

There will be the opportunity to ask questions and to find out about a career in primary care and its potential to be a varied and interesting career.

This event is free to attend.
