    Episode 12. Backstage with Imogen Staveley

    Episode 12. Backstage with Imogen Staveley

    Happy New Year!
    Our first episode of 2021 is with a young GP and rising star Dr Imogen Staveley.
    Imogen is newly qualified, having only been a GP for 6 years- but what she has achieved in that time is quite remarkable.
    She is a GP appraiser, Deputy Chair of Warwickshire North CCG, and a clinical lead in the Transforming Primary Care team of The Healthy London Partnership. She also recently graduated with an MBA from Warwick Business School (with distinction!). Before this, she completed a 'Darzi' leadership fellowship at UCLPartners.
    Aspiring GP leaders at Next Gen events often ask, amongst other things: how to find new leadership opportunities, what makes a good mentor and how to get one, and how to grapple with that sense of "imposter syndrome" that can affect us all too often early on in our leadership journeys.
    This podcast is for anyone who'd like some honest answers to those pertinent questions.
    I was delighted when Imogen agreed to come on the podcast, because I've always admired her drive, her confidence in stretching herself, her ability to plan ahead, her honesty in getting things wrong, and her commitment to investing in herself and to others coming up behind her.
    *Highlights:
    Start of her leadership journey and current roles (5 mins)How she has planned her career (9.5 mins)Doing an MBA (11 mins)The importance of coaching and mentoring, and how to find one (13 mins)Not getting opportunities (19 mins)Being a new mum (21 mins)Navigating the return to work after maternity leave (23 mins)Being a part time portfolio GP (30 mins)Future career plans (33 mins)Final 3 questions- an article, a role model, and top tips (35 mins)

    Episode 9. Backstage with Joe Harrison.

    This conversation is with Joe Harrison, Chief Executive of Milton Keynes University Hospitals NHS Trust (MKUH), and one of the most inspiring hospital leaders I've ever come across.
    Joe's been at MKUH since 2013, having spent decades working in acute hospitals. His focus has been on technology, improving staff wellbeing, and patient safety. MKUH's achievements on these fronts are remarkable, and Joe's thoughtful and caring leadership style are a testament to this.
    For example, MKUH have spent the last three years trailblazing in the digital world of health care, and already have more than 70,000 patients registered to their MyCARE app which allows them to book and change appointments, access hospital correspondence and information from their smartphone. Recently they became one of the first hospitals in the UK to enable patients to view their consolidated health care records directly within the Health app on their iPhone.
    To improve staff wellbeing they've worked hard to introduce a range of benefits in recent years, including free car parking for all staff, free tea and coffee in all staff rooms; and enhanced staff health and wellbeing services – particularly around stress and musculoskeletal conditions, enhanced bereavement leave, special leave and flexible working.
    Joe is married to Samantha Jones, a nurse by background who has also had a successful career in the NHS, which you can hear more about in Episode 2. They have 11-year old twins, and are really open about how they work hard to make sure family comes first.
    In this episode we dig a bit deeper, and explore how he got to his current role, why he cares about the things he does, and what it's been like leading a hospital trust during Covid:

    Episode 7. Backstage with Karyn McCluskey

    This conversation is with Karyn McCluskey, chief executive of Community Justice Scotland. I heard Karyn on a podcast a few years ago, and never forgot her story.
    Karyn trained as a nurse in the NHS, but has worked in the police for the last 22 years. She was Director of the Scottish Violence Reduction Unit for the last decade, which proposed a different way of addressing violence in Scotland. They developed injury surveillance, gang intervention and gang exit, and focused on preventing knife carrying and injury. She helps support the Medics Against Violence charity in Scotland, set up in conjunction with the Violence Reduction Unit.
    So how did Karyn get such startling results in a city once known as the murder capital of western Europe?.
