  • I attended the webinar you presented in this evening and as a newly qualified GP found it very insightful.

Sutton CCG

Commissioning Manager

"The Primary Care Team took over the management of the CEPN funding in May 2017 and were fortunate to be put in touch with Aim Solutions (Mel Ashdown and India Peach), who are experienced project managers in CEPN work.  

We have worked very closely as a Team... developed a comprehensive programme of non-clinical training including Medical Assistants and Care Navigators and this work is set to continue and expand in 2018 to include protected learning time for all staff within general practice and encouraging recruitment in primary care through school Career Fairs.  

This work will go a long way to support the workforce issues and transformation of primary care in the future."

NEL Commissioning Support Unit

Estates Consultant

"Quite frankly having worked alongside Melanie for the best part of 18 months, I have to say that she is quite possibly the most diligent and pro-active person I have come across. Mel not only strived to ensure that the organisation she helped establish was efficient and well run, but also that her colleagues needs and views were given appropriate consideration.

Melanie is hard working, meticulous and professional in her approach and also friendly and flexible in her demeanour. I would not hesitate to include Mel in any team or project I worked on in the future."
