Biography

Registered general practice nurse (GPN), Telehealth facilitator for technology enabled care services programme, Northern Staffordshire, England
Ann is a qualified nurse with a special interest in managing ‘long term conditions’ such as Diabetes,Asthma, COPD, Heart disease and Stroke.
Until recently she was a primary care nurse in a busy rural practice pushing forward with any technology available to empower the patient and improve healthcare outcomes.  This determination resulted in the practice being named as one of the digitally exemplar practices in Staffordshire.
Over the last few years Ann has had a pivotal role in up-spilling GPNs both in the locality and nationally across England, helping to create digital champions with the knowledge and enthusiasm to continue rolling out technology enabled care in their own localities.
Ann has had a long career in nursing services and has spent time in both primary and secondary care encompassing many clinical specialities resulting in a wide knowledge base.
She is now committed to facilitating with the improvement and up-spilling of clinical practice and therefore enhancing patient empowerment and outcomes.
