Alice Benton - Director
Alice is passionate about ensuring the strength and future resilience of primary health and social care services. The roll-out of robust primary care networks, with general practice at the centre, will underpin the success of Integrated Care Systems as they embed across the country. With the introduction of dentistry, optometry and community pharmacy into primary care networks in the next year or two, Alice will be able to draw on her experience across these services to facilitate effective integration. Alice supports clients find ways to reconfigure services, employ a workforce, collaborate effectively and maximise job satisfaction. That is her passion and is at the forefront of what we do. Armed with detailed knowledge of the contracts, regulations, governance and financial flows, Alice ensures the input we provide is service-specific and therefore both efficient and relevant.
Alice’s recent projects include landing a CCG’s PCN map and developing a primary care strategy across evolving health systems. She significantly improved the relationship between health and local planning departments in a CCG area in order to maximise developer contributions to general practice. Along the way, Alice has also gathered much knowledge about contracts, practice mergers and due diligence.
