Dr Manjit Purewal - Director of Development and Improvement

Qualifying in 1993, I have been a GP in Yorkshire for over 20 years and I remain a Senior Partner in a large practice in Leeds. During my career I have held positions including Clinical Director for Quality Improvement for Leeds CCG and joined the OneMedical Group as Director of Development and Improvement in spring 2020.

I have a strong history of board level and strategic leadership, leading teams, developing clinicians, and sharing insights into portfolio working as a career. For organisations to be successful, profitable, and resilient in the future, I believe that everyone needs to contribute and have their voices heard. I develop individuals and teams to bring out their potential to work creatively and innovatively together. I have a natural coaching style and like to challenge the status quo.

My passion lies in quality improvement rather than the traditional Quality Assurance or performance management. I was co-founder of the Leeds Institute for Quality Improvement, bringing together individuals from primary care, secondary care, social services, voluntary organisations and patients to co-produce pathways of care. The impact of this approach has been demonstrated in Cardiology, Diabetes and Frailty. I represented LIQH internationally and I presented at the Jönköping Micro-Festival.
