Say hello to our ambassadors

We’re delighted to celebrate the appointment of more than 100 health and care professionals to our ambassador programme – bringing the total membership to 134!

The 100+ new ambassadors join our current network of highly qualified and skilled health and care professionals, all of whom share a passion for personalised care.

Launched in 2021, our ambassador programme provides a platform for the Personalised Care Institute and health and care professionals to work together to demonstrate the value of personalised care; advocating for its adoption across health and social care in order to empower people to feel in control and confident about their health.

Our ambassadors represent many professions and specialties working in primary, secondary and social care, academia and industry. They spread the word on personalised care by authoring articles in leading journals and publications, crafting blogs for prestigious health organisations and royal colleges, and speaking on podcasts and at professional conferences.

Dr Emma Hyde, Clinical Director of the Personalised Care Institute, says:

“It’s fantastic to see our ambassador programme going from strength to strength, with over 100 new health and care professionals joining our original cohort. Our ambassadors do a brilliant job spreading the word on how personalised care improves health outcomes and leads to better experiences for patients and health and care professionals. I am looking forward to working with them on our shared mission of putting personalised care at the heart of health and care practice.”
