Newham changemaker

Imrana is the GP Mental Health Lead for Newham. She works as a GP and is also the Lead for the Workforce Wellbeing Hub, a service recently set up to support NHS and social care staff. She is directly involved in designing and improving all aspects of mental health services, from perinatal and birth through to old age.

“I am passionate about improving the holistic wellbeing of patients and residents. I took up my current post and continue to work in this role tirelessly as I genuinely want to reduce inequality and design services which work for all our residents. I think Newham’s health and wellbeing strategy embodies this holistic approach to help

improve our lives individually and collectively.”
