Ruth qualified as a GP in Oxford and, alongside mainstream practice, worked as the CCG Locality Lead for Urgent Care and as a GP with a Special Interest (GPwSI) in Musculoskeletal Medicine.
She became the Medical Director for Buckinghamshire MSK community service in 2011, and then a largely full-time Medical Director in 2013.
The past six years have seen her working as a Medical Director across a mixture of community MSK services, primary care, out of hours and urgent care, new models of care and prison healthcare.
She has a passion for increasing the effectiveness of primary and community services for both patients and staff and the model she created with the Prime Minister's Challenge Fund in 2014, ‘Practice Assist’, was shortlisted for the HSJ finals in the category ‘Primary Care Innovation’.
Ruth is also the Medical Director for Leeds GP Confederation and continues to see patients as a GP in practice.
