Coming from a publicly funded integrated healthcare system I am frustrated that we often do not allocate resources across the whole system in such a way as to optimise patient outcomes. This led to my interest in VBHC, PROMs as a tool to enhance communication between patients and clinicians, and the need for patients to be able to access better information to inform their own health decision making.
Sally has front-line experience of primary care at its most challenging having rebuilt a struggling GP practice in the Welsh valleys.
She entered a career in medical management in 2011 and was appointed to Assistant Medical Director for value-based care in the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board in 2014.
Still practising as a GP, Sally is now National Clinical Lead for Value-based and Prudent Healthcare in Wales, and Honorary Professor at Swansea School of Medicine.
Her current interests include the utilisation of value-based principles to allocate resource in publicly funded systems, patient outcome data and digital transformation.
