MEET THE TEAM
The Southern Hampshire Primary Care Alliance has a Board of six GP Directors all of whom work in our member practices.
They are voted in by their GP colleagues after a nomination and voting process. Each of the directors has special interests and a variety of the skills that they can bring to both their roles as Directors and to the organisation. In order to strike a balance between continuity and new energy, a process of re-election takes place every few years.

Specialist in: Elderly Care, Joint Injections, Vertigo and Diabetes.
I trained at Southampton University Medical School qualifying in 1994. Following that, I worked as a junior doctor in Portsmouth rotating through multiple specialties settling on Elderly Medicine.

Dr. Raj Laly
I joined the alliance as a director in March 2019. I’ve always had an interest with regards to strategy within business and feel that my involvement with Southern Hampshire Primary Care Alliance would be dedicated to this specific aspect. At a time of NHS change and new contract opportunities, SHPCA is well placed to engage with these areas.
I also work as a partner in Swan Medical Group, Petersfield and am aware of the overall healthcare challenges in primary care. These experiences allow SHPCA to be at the forefront for change and negotiate on behalf of its member practices. During my spare time I enjoy playing and coaching hockey for Havant Hockey Club and spending time with my wife and two young children.
Clinical Services Manager (Cardiology/Urgent Care Centre)
I am a nurse/midwife/health visitor with over 40 years’ experience of working in the NHS, both in the acute and community sectors. I have worked for the Alliance since April 2018 initially to implement the Cardiology Service. I became a permeant member of staff in July 2018 and as well as the Cardiology service and its redesign have responsibility for the UCC Payroll and some HR.
Chief Operating Officer, SHPCA
I’ve had a wide experience in providing operational management within many different areas of healthcare services. I consider the prime purpose of my job, to ensure that we provide a supportive and professional environment to allow all our clinical staff to do the best job that they can for our patients. I’m particularly keen on developing new ways of working to provide better access to quality services for our population, so I’m delighted to be working with the South Hampshire Primary Care Alliance at this exciting time of launching new services of care outside of normal GP practice hours.
Operational & Contract Delivery Manager
I have worked in the Primary Care for the Armed Forces, and the NHS Primary Care, Secondary Care, and Community Care sectors. Prior to joining the Alliance, I was a GP Surgery Practice Manager. I joined the Alliance in September 2017 as the GPEA Service Manager and I am now the Operational and & Service Delivery Manager looking after both the GPEA/IPCAs for both the F&G and SEH localities as well as the Phlebotomy Service for Gosport and Hayling Island practices.
My role in the Alliance has morphed over 20 months in the management team to reflect the demands of a young and rapidly growing business. Achievements include program lead for ‘IPCAS mobilisation’, phlebotomy, development of Alliance business operating infrastructure, community cardiology and Urgent Care. Professionally I am non-clinical. My background includes roles in social work; senior management roles in local government and large voluntary sector businesses; freelance project management (and training) with social housing, care, and support providers; commissioning manager (Health and Care Portsmouth); as well as NED / Trusteeships. I’ve been a member of national development workgroups (NHS England – personalisation), Shared Lives Plus (extending the model to healthcare support) and Alabare – a Veterans’ Charity. I believe passionately that individuals can be enabled to better manage their health and that the Alliance’s has a key role within the health system – ‘enabling better outcomes’ at scale.
GPEA Performance Manager
I have been with SHPCA since December 2017 and have been involved with Primary care since 2012. Prior to working for the Alliance, I worked at Brockhurst surgery as a receptionist for 5 years
My aim is to make sure that the IPCAS Service runs efficiently and delivers the best possible service to patients.
I have worked in both primary and secondary health care for the past ten years as an administrator. Since joining the Alliance I have acquired multiple strings to my bow. My work is varied and I provide administrative support for HR services, phlebotomy calls, patient and staff feedback collation as well as day to day administrative support for the team.
I am a part-qualified ACCA accountant who has worked in Finance for over 35 Years, during this time I have developed and gained a broad skillset along the way. I started working for SHPCA in November 17 to control the finance for the company, I have set up Quickbooks and various spreadsheets to monitor the daily finance spend and as I have a good excel understanding I am also able to help my team when they need help.
I have worked for the Alliance since October 2018 where I work currently as the Phlebotomy Supervisor, responsible for 10 phlebotomists in sites in Hayling Island and Gosport. Prior to joining the Alliance, I worked in Queen Alexandra Hospital and the Royal Hampshire County Hospital for approximately 8 years. I aim to provide support for all those working within my team by hands-on clinical supervision, appraisals, and meetings to ensure a good standard of care delivered to our patients. In my spare time, I enjoy running in the great outdoors.
Head of Governance & Quality, Caldicott Guardian
I am a Registered Nurse and a graduate of the NHS Management Training Scheme with over 20 years of experience working in healthcare. I have a broad range of clinical and management experience and have worked in a number of roles across a range of health settings from policy development at the Department of Health to care for acutely unwell patients in a Coronary Care Unit. Throughout my career, I have been consistently driven to ensure healthcare is of the highest quality, makes the most of available resources and achieves the best possible patient care outcomes.
SHPCA GPEA Service Site Manager
I am the IPCAS/GPEA Site Services Manager, with nearly 30 years’ experience of working in the NHS in Acute, Community and Primary Care. I have been supporting the Alliance since the launch of the GPEA Service in October 2017. I am a people person, focused on supporting staff and patients alike. I am a very hands-on Operational Manager who is easily accessible with a physical presence where possible. I have a passion for effective and efficient service delivery. My aim is to provide inspirational and motivational leadership and support to both our Clinical and Administration workstreams within our Service.
Business & HR Service Manager
I have a long history of working in an NHS and healthcare background, specialising in business support and administration. Since 2019, I have started working in an HR role capacity, working and training alongside external companies. My main role is to ensure smooth HR and recruitment processes, working with the team to ensure that we as a business are complying with HR rules regulations and policy creation, and being the first point of contact for all HR queries.
Project Support & Data Protection Officer
I joined the Alliance over four years ago and have worked on projects around the transformation of Primary Care, I started by working at the CCG supporting on Vanguard projects in Gosport and Fareham, I then spent some time seconded to Southern Health generally working on MCP and Better Local Care initiatives. Since May last year, I’ve been working directly for the Alliance on varied and interesting projects, helping the Alliance in its continued and rapid growth. More recently and following the introduction of GDPR, I’ve added the role of Data Protection Officer and this year I achieved my accreditation as a trainer for MECC (Making Every Contact Count). Coming from a banking background, working with the NHS has been a steep learning curve but a road I’m grateful I’ve traveled!
