The Next GenCast
Episode 12. Backstage with Imogen Staveley
Happy New Year!
Our first episode of 2021 is with a young GP and rising star Dr Imogen Staveley.
Imogen is newly qualified, having only been a GP for 6 years- but what she has achieved in that time is quite remarkable.
She is a GP appraiser, Deputy Chair of Warwickshire North CCG, and a clinical lead in the Transforming Primary Care team of The Healthy London Partnership. She also recently graduated with an MBA from Warwick Business School (with distinction!). Before this, she completed a 'Darzi' leadership fellowship at UCLPartners.
Aspiring GP leaders at Next Gen events often ask, amongst other things: how to find new leadership opportunities, what makes a good mentor and how to get one, and how to grapple with that sense of "imposter syndrome" that can affect us all too often early on in our leadership journeys.
This podcast is for anyone who'd like some honest answers to those pertinent questions.
I was delighted when Imogen agreed to come on the podcast, because I've always admired her drive, her confidence in stretching herself, her ability to plan ahead, her honesty in getting things wrong, and her commitment to investing in herself and to others coming up behind her.
