Connect with Melissa


Melissa is delighted to be offered the chance to talk at this conference. No stranger to primary health care, Melissa is a Registered Nurse, and worked in a busy suburban General Practice for over half of her life. During this time, she completed her Post-Graduate Diploma endorsed with Long Term Conditions.

Moving to Compass Health in 2015, she became a LEAN practitioner, more recently taking on the role of Health Care Home Programme Lead. Both of these roles are stimulating, offering as they do the opportunity to implement a new model of care essential for the future proofing of General Practice, whilst – crucially -  staying responsive to the needs of patients.
