Senior Pharmacist for Diabetes and Endocrinology, County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust
As one of our Clinical Champions, Hannah hopes to strengthen links between primary and secondary care, developing an education package for community pharmacists taking into consideration time pressures and multiple platforms for delivery.
She plans to build algorithms into existing computer systems algorithms to help streamline consultations aiding services such as NMS and MUR. She would like to link with Newcastle University to ensure deliverable outcomes for patients.
Hannah is a practicing clinical pharmacist and an independent prescriber. She has various different roles involving clinic and ward involvement, governance and safety roles and enjoys being part of the local multidisciplinary team.
She sits on various different national and local committees including the UKCPA Diabetes and Endocrinology Committee and the Diabetes Clinical Advisory Group for her locality.
Hannah has a passion for inspiring the next generation of pharmacists. She has been a visiting lecturer delivering the Undergraduate Education around diabetes at Newcastle University Pharmacy School for the last 3 years and takes every opportunity to speak nationally at events promoting good diabetes care. She enjoys her varied role and hopes to one day become a consultant pharmacist in diabetes.
Hannah has had the benefit of being part of a forward thinking, inspirational team who have successfully rolled out integrated care for people with diabetes across the locality.
She has enjoyed contributing to this patient centred project and has been inspired by her colleagues to look at how pharmacists can get involved in more integrated care for the benefit of the patient. With that in mind Hannah has worked hard to put together a multidisciplinary task force to push forward the pharmacy integration agenda.
