Female GP lead

Dr Nikki Harrison

Nikki’s role focuses on the specific issues faces by our cohort of female GPs.  

Adversities following maternity leave whilst working for the RAF prompted me to enter medicine, and I applied for the job as Female GP Network Lead as I felt we should be doing so much more to support women in the workplace, especially in key roles such as medicine.  

- My aims for the next 12 months in this role will be to: 

- Create a female network of GPs and GP trainees within Shropshire; 

- Use the network to identify the key issues impacting female GPs; 

- Create an online wellness hub that can be accessed to advertise jobs, courses, mentoring and support for female GPs 

- Create a panel of female GPs who can be a point of contacts in their area of interest for others who are seeking alternative roles and portfolio careers 

- Introduce child friendly networking coffee mornings.
