23 – Professor Trisha Greenhalgh

Over the past twelve months Professor Trisha Greenhalgh has become a somewhat unlikely hero for critics of the Government’s Summary Care Record rollout.

Her long-awaited report into the care record rollout – commissioned by Connecting for Health – delivered an uncompromising and blunt assessment when it was published in June, warning of ‘insoluble’ problems with the controversial scheme.

Now head of the Healthcare Innovation and Policy Unit at Queen Mary University of London, where she moved from University College London last year, Professor Greenhalgh is one of the country’s leading GP academics and has also led high-profile projects looking at rationing, patient experience and self-management of long-term conditions.

She is also a part time GP at a practice in north London.
