NATIONAL CHAMPION IN 4-WAY FS, SILVER MEDALLIST AT THE 2019 WORLD CUP IN THE FEMALE FS 4-WAY CATEGORY

An Army Doctor by day, she’s currently running and managing her practice and its amazing staff, as a practice they also spend time advising the local chain of command as the local Medical Subject Matter Experts, and are making sure that Army personnel deploying with the COVID Support Force supporting the NHS are fit to go.

Anna said “It feels like a lot! The last few weeks have been super busy, and I expect the few months will continue to be! I’m working super hard, but I really don’t mind as I feel that we are contributing, and making a difference. Whilst I’m not seeing so many patients face-face-to-face now (a lot more of our work is over the phone now to reduce the risk of spread and exposure to staff and patients), the patient workload is still there to be addressed. 

Coronavirus has fundamentally changed the way we work at primary care with a rapid shift to remote or phone working, and the introduction of e-consulting and other new technologies, which has many benefits, and there is a huge amount of amazing work being done across the Health Care sector in both the NHS and MoD, from care homes to GP practices to Hospitals, with innovation and absolute dedication to the cause. My biggest admiration goes to Ambulance Crews and the Hospital clinicians – they are seeing sick patients face to face every day, selflessly putting themselves at risk and making some really tough decisions – I salute them.”
