Kay Keane

Practice Manager
Alvanley Family Practice
Starting her career in the NHS as a 19 year old reluctant Medical Receptionist Kay quickly realised that Primary Care was the place for her. Working throughout the system with a national profile with NHSE Kay was made redundant in 2014. She used this to decide on a career move that would find her closer to home and give her a better work life balance. Choosing what she thought would be a “nice” job as a Practice Manager she finds this the most challenging and inspirational move she could have made, citing practice management as “the best and worst job in the world in equal measure”.

Kay now sits on the Council for the National Association of Primary Care, has been awarded a Fellowship of the Royal College of Arts for her work to bring about a social change in General Practice and was 2017’s Practice Manager of the Year. She will still say that she has no idea what the job of being a practice manager is about, but for her the ability to work with the wider community and focus on wellbeing as well as first class healthcare is what gives her the enthusiasm she has by the bucket load!

Panel session - Joining the Dots: a social model for mental health support

Problems such as managing debt, dealing with a rogue landlord or getting adjustments at work can be much more difficult to manage if you also have a mental health problem. These practical issues can have a spiralling effect on people’s mental health.
Mental health is the number one health issue for our clients and this number is growing. Last year, the number of Citizens Advice clients reporting a mental health problem in England increased by 9%. These clients are also more likely to come to Citizens Advice at crisis point.
In this session we will hear from Clinical Director of The Healthy Liverpool Community Programme, Dr Janet Bliss, to understand how social models of health, supporting mental health have been developed, in partnership with Citizens Advice lead, Caryn Matthews.
