'Retirement' opens up possibilities for thinking and working in new ways with colleagues in the health service and in service user groups. 'Better Health for Harder Times' is one result.It is a different kind of book - a truly collective effort from service users and professionals talking about how they co-create services and asking just what a sustainable health service for the future needs to look like. Get it here http://bit.ly/TZiQF7 How - with all the present turmoil, can we make the many pockets of progressive practice like this add up to a new future?
Retirement also brings a new perspectives on health and social care. Organising heath care transport for frail villagers and taking part in a good neighbour scheme leaves me itching to talk about joining up service and reorganising clinics.
Member Social Care Investment Group @ Building a better understanding of private investment in the care home sector and the directions of the sector's development is a crucial area requiring new thinking. I am glad to help in anyway I can. I recently prepared a short briefing on the health assets approach which is being picked up in the College Care Group seminar programme and seems set to influence some of the thinking about new directions being undertaken by Professor Mary Daly. From 2013 to Present (2 years) Oxford, United KingdomChair, RCNRI @ Nursing research has flourished in the many years since I was one of the handful of sociologists interested in the development of the profession. A successful collaborative venture, the RCN Research Institute is now well established. Under the direction of Professor Kate Seers, it has an impressive grant income and publication record. Its current themes are patient and public involvement and patient and nurse experiences, patient reported outcomes and translating knowledge into practice. I chaired my first meeting in November 2014, taking over from Professor Sally Kendall and looking towards the next chapter in the Institute's life. From 2014 to Present (1 year) Chair, Centre for Public Engagment @ The Centre for Public Engagement under the direction of Professor Mary Chambers is an exciting new venture integrating patients and the public much more fully into teaching and research in health and social care. It works with partners - locally nationally and internationally - to improve services and contribute to the development of knowledge in this important area. As Chair of the Advisory Group, I am still learning with colleagues how to make such a group a worthwhile experience for all concerned - not least the patient and public members who give up their time to take part From 2013 to Present (2 years) Professor Emerita of Health Care @ I was Professor of Health Care at The Open University from 1996-2005 carrying out research and writing teaching materials on the organisation of health and social care. I retain occasional links with the University. I also do a certain amount of journal peer reviewing and in late 2015 am about to examine a PhD for an Australian university - examining is not something I have done for a while. . From September 2005 to Present (10 years 4 months) Member of the Programe Board - patient/public representative @ Re-examining the scope of current legislation to ensure it enables professionals to provide safe and effective pharmacy services for patients is a daunting and highly complex business. I am one of two patient representatives in this large stakeholder forum, drawing on and extending my knowledge of pharmacy service organisation at the same time as working with my colleague and the in-house team to spot issues for patients and to advise on how best to ensure we get an input from service users and carers at the front line. From May 2013 to August 2015 (2 years 4 months) Mentor - Managing Nursing Homes @ RESEC has set up learning hubs across the country and in 2014 initiated a programme in Leicestershire providing volunteer mentoring support for managers in care homes and home care. Becoming a mentor to nursing home staff is giving me an insight into a neglected sector of health and care activity and opening up my thinking about policy development, support and networking for those who work in these challenging settings, facing the uneasy join between health and social care and juggling shrinking budgets. From 2014 to 2015 (1 year) Council Member @ It was a great experience to be part of the setting up of a brand new regulator. I contributed across the full range of Council activity, including strategy development and performance monitoring. I was a member of the Remuneration Committee. I brought an historical and contemporary understanding of regulation policy to the Council member role. With my experience of patient and public consultation and engagement, both from my academic work and more practically from my time in NIHR I was pleased to see how this aspect of the work developed and flourished. From October 2009 to March 2013 (3 years 6 months) Policy Advisor @ Working on a pro bono basis I advised the Chair and CEO. Signposts is a series of occasional articles from senior academics for Health and Care Weekly.See my starter on the dilemmas of being a public service manager on 26 June 2012 From May 2011 to November 2012 (1 year 7 months) Director RfPB Programme @ I was the founding National Director for this new programme devising guidelines for applicants for research funding and supervising the work of 10 regional funding committees. From April 2005 to December 2009 (4 years 9 months)
