Tell us a little bit about yourself
Prior to Attain, I worked in the NHS for six years as a medical doctor specialising in anaesthetics. Rotating through different hospitals and acute specialities gave me an in-depth knowledge of how hospital processes and policies work from the shop-floor. From the outset I’ve been involved in both elective and emergency pathways and managed specialist intensive care and maternity units, adding to my experience of co-ordinating multi-disciplinary clinical teams.
In addition to my clinical responsibilities, I have a keen interest in quality improvement and results from projects I have led, have been presented at multiple high-profile conferences. My interest and passion for creating a more sustainable NHS is what prompted my move to Attain.
How have your first 30 days been at Attain?
I really can’t believe it has been 30 days already! I was invited to team meetings prior to joining which meant I became familiar with Attain’s business objectives and the colleagues I would be working with, making my first day a lot easier. Attain made sure that I had a strong welcome into the company and I am surprised at how much I have got involved with from the start. I am humbled by the support that I have received especially from my managers and buddy who keep in regular contact with me.
What attracted you to Attain?
A large part are the people; we share the same passion of improving the NHS and every person I have met so far is aligned to this viewpoint. Attain lives by their values which are in line with my own and that of our health service and as a company, Attain provides support from strategy through to delivery which I think is vital in creating long lasting change.
What’s the best thing about being employed with Attain?
The people and their culture. Everyone is so approachable and willing to offer their help in any way they can – they really are committed to go the extra mile for colleagues and clients.
What do you hope the future brings for you with Attain?
I hope I can add value through a clinical lens to Attain’s work and look forward to working on a multitude of projects to develop professionally within the company.
