Group Lead Nurse, Lakeside Healthcare
Kerry has been a nurse for 18 years and began her career working in various hospital services – where she became passionate about the need to bridge the gap between primary and secondary care, and increasing digital access for patients. She moved into primary care in 2016 as an ANP at Yaxley Group Practice in Peterborough. Here Kerry implemented key digital changes which moved the practice from around 30% digital access to 60%. She also worked with doctors and nurses to implement remote management of chronic diseases. Yaxley was then merged into Lakeside Group – a partnership of eight practices in the Midlands serving more than 170,000 patients. In 2020 Kerry was promoted to group lead nurse at Lakeside. Kerry has played a major role in implementing Doctrin at Lakeside’s practices, using her experience in the digitisation of primary care services to ensure the right platform was selected for staff and patients.
