Nishma Manek is a GP trainee in London. She has taken a year out of her GP training to be a Clinical Fellow to the National Medical Director, Sir Bruce Keogh. This year, she has been working for the Director of Primary Care at NHS England on the GP Forward View. She has also established an innovative leadership development programme for GP trainees and newly qualified GPs.
As part of her medical degree, she completed an intercalated BSc in Healthcare Management at Imperial College, which sparked an interest in NHS leadership and service reform. She then completed an Academic Foundation Programme in Public Health, during which she was selected to attend Michael Porter’s course in Value-based Healthcare at Harvard Business School.
She currently sits on the NW London Faculty board for the Royal College of GPs, and blogs about her experiences as a trainee for The Guardian and Pulse magazine.
