2004 – 2013 – AHP consultant advisor (Part time) for Strategic Health Authority (Surrey and Sussex then South East Coast). This role was one of twelve Nationally and allowed me the opportunity to contribute towards National Policy working closely with the Chief Health Professions Officer and regional colleagues and I have contributed towards the following policy development:

It also offers the opportunity to collaborate and network with Clinical Senates Nationally, sharing learning across regional boundaries.

Michael Bosch MBBS equiv. MRCGP DRCOG MSc - General Practitioner

Smallfield Surgery, Wheelers Lane, Smallfield, Surrey

Michael is a GP in Surrey who came to the UK after graduating in Germany in 1994. Having spent a year of his undergraduate training at St George’s Medical School he was impressed not only by the NHS but also fell in love with general practice.

After completing his GP training in 1999, he worked part time for East Surrey Health Authority’s Public Health Department where he developed guidelines for managing depression and projects. In 2001 he completed an MSc in General Practice at King’s College London GKT Medical School. Since 2002 Michael has been a GP partner in a practice in Smallfield, Surrey, but he continued throughout to work part-time for the local PCG, PCT and CCG and since 2014 he is also a director in his local GP Federation.

Michael is passionate about the principles of the NHS and believes that it can continue to provide high quality services in an extremely efficient way as long as it nurtures its unique system of general practice and primary care. Clinical leaders across all specialities need to come together with patients who use services and adapt and improve publically funded healthcare for all. The Clinical Senates can provide a forum for discussion and debates for that purpose and provide NHS commissioners with reassurance that their plans can lead to better care.

Public Governor (Surrey) – South East Coast Ambulance Service; Secretary – Cardiovascular Care Partnership UK; Co-Opted Council Member – British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention & Rehabilitation; Lay Member – South East Coast, Strategic Clinical Network – Cardiovascular; Lay Member – South East Clinical Senate

Priscilla Chandro suffered a heart attack at the age of 37 and has since gone on to become what she terms as a “professional” patient and public representative. Her heart attack went undetected for three days, as she was misdiagnosed as having flu. Through her “work”, she is conscious of highlighting misdiagnosis and “stereotyping” when necessary, as she feels that these are not issues solely related to cardiac cases.

She is an Ambassador for the British Heart Foundation and has been involved in many activities, including media work to raise awareness of Women and Heart Disease, member of grant committees, the Cardiovascular Disease Outcomes Strategy and the Keogh Mortality Rapid Response Reviews, amongst others.  She is currently involved as a lay member for the new style CQC hospital reviews.

Her “fixed” positions are as Public Governor for the South East Coast Ambulance service, Secretary for Cardiovascular Care Partnership UK, co-opted member of council, being the first female patient, for the British Association of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation and as a lay member for the South East Cardiovascular Strategic Clinical Network and Clinical Senate. She is also part of the national Women’s Health Patient Safety Committee.
