I have gained PPI experience through my involvement with Herts Valley CCG, Anticoagulation in Practice, ABPI and Anticoagulation UK (ACE UK). Across these settings, I am responsible for representing patients, reviewing and evaluating GP services and developing educational information and resources. I have facilitated focus groups seeking patient input for the development of technologies for the diagnosis of VTE and anticoagulation management.
In the capacity of patient expert and on behalf of ACEUK, I am responsible for making submissions to NICE for Technology and Diagnostic guidance.
I have joined the NIHR DEC London as I have an interest in diagnostics and wish to expand my knowledge and understanding of research and integration of new technologies into the NHS pathways.
