What roles do you hold at the moment? I am a Partner in a rural practice on Dartmoor and the Training Programme Director for the local LEET GPST4s.
What is the best leadership/career advice you've ever received? I think there are two things that have stuck with me. The first is that its not all about leadership, it's about followership too. I want everyone to move together in the same direction with common purpose and vision. The second is about personal values; to be fulfilled and to lead with clarity you need to have a deep understanding of your values.
What is your biggest challenge?
Turning my ideas into reality. I have no problem coming up with research ideas, orways in which I could lead meaningful change in the system, but I struggle withconverting these ideas into action. Some of this is due to lack of funding or time, andsometimes it’s just not knowing where or how to start. But it’s something I amworking on….
What’s the best leadership/career advice you’ve ever received?
That’s a difficult one. I find it difficult to pick out single pieces of advice, they all gointo the mix and get mulled over in due course. But I know a lot of people worryabout imposter syndrome and I remember someone pointing out that if you’re in aroom, at a table, or involved in a discussion, whatever the forum, you are there for areason. Someone has invited you to contribute. Someone else values what you have to say, so just say it. You may feel that your contributions are naïve or simple, butthat’s your own ideas come easily to you – others are likely to value your contributions more highly.
Our second NextGen Webinar on 'Reconnecting with our strengths and leading under pressure' - with thanks to Hannah Miller!
What role(s) do you hold at the moment?
I’m Rachel and I am a GP ST3 in Sheffield.
I do a number of things alongside clinical work. I run the Trailblazer GP scheme, supporting GPs working in areas of deprivation across Yorkshire and Humber; I sit on the RCGP Health Inequalities Standing Group; and I’m also part of a group of GPs who have created a website called fairhealth. Fairhealth is a website which provides an educational resource for health professionals on health equity. As part of this online resource, I have been developing a podcast (Finding fairhealth) interviewing experienced colleagues sharing some inspirational and interesting stories on some of the challenges and solutions to tackling health inequity.
I also tweet about health inequity so do get in touch @rmsteen
