New Chief Operating Officer for Conexus Healthcare

Conexus Healthcare Managing Director Stepping Down

New faces at Conexus

It’s been a busy old month so far at Conexus Healthcare. Not only have we welcomed Faye Schofield, our new and super-organised Clinical Services Administrator but we’ve also been joined by Debbie Aitchison, our new Chief Operating Officer / Deputy Managing Director.

Before she’s had chance to take off her coat, Kara our comms lead grabbed two minutes of her time to find out a little more about her role and how she’ll be supporting practices.

Debbie Aitchison - Conexus Healthcare

Debbie Aitchison

Kara: A very warm welcome to the team, Debbie. What sort of things will we find you involved with?

Debbie: Well I’ve only been working for Conexus for a couple of weeks now but on the whole, you’ll mostly find me leading on the strategic and operational development of our training and consultancy services as well as our clinical services. 

We support GP practices in Wakefield and help them to deliver primary care at scale. Evening and weekend appointments in our GP Care Wakefield service, together with NHS Health Checks, have been up and running for a while now and I’m really looking forward to launching Lung Health Checks shortly so it’s busy times right now.

Kara: And you mentioned leading on training and consultancy services too. Can you tell us a little about that?

Debbie: Yes, so we currently provide training and consultancy services around Care Navigation which everybody knows us for and we’ve recently launched the country’s first accredited Level 3 qualification in Social Prescribing. I’m working with a truly fantastic team who run and deliver these services day in, day out and looking forward to implementing plans for developing these services even further. So very exciting times!

Kara: Without question! Well before you dash, would you like to share how people can get in touch with you?

Debbie: Yes of course – so both myself and the team would very much like to hear from our member practices first and foremost.

Continue to share any feedback you have about GP Care Wakefield, NHS Health Checks or Care Navigation from your staff or patients.

If you’re a receptionist, an ANP, nurse or GP, we’d love to hear from you if you’d like to work with us in the GP Care Wakefield service.

And most of all, please continue to share your ideas and thoughts about how we can work to better support you in practice. We’re already seeing how working together benefits practices and patients alike and we want to do this even more with your help.

Finally if you’re not in Wakefield but you would like to find out more about any of the services we provide, please get in touch. The best and quickest way to get in touch with us is via email: contact@conexus-healthcare.org.
