As the project has grown and expanded across the Mendips in 2015 she has also been working closely with compassionate communities.  The project was designed to better connect and support patients and improve working lives for those in health care. It has also demonstrated cost savings as a by product of this patient centred approach.  

She continues to work as a full time partner in Frome medical practice and has recently retired as a trustee at Dorothy House Hospice but the practice continues to work closely with their local hospice.  In July this year she was awarded a Point of Light award by the Prime minster in behalf of the team for the work and its achievements.
