Melissa Simpson  

Programme Lead, Health Care Home, Compass Health

Melissa will be talking about the Health Care Home model of care, and the benefits and support it offers older patients. She’s delighted to be offered the chance to talk at this conference, as better supporting an ageing and older population was one of the founding principles behind Health Care Home. 

No stranger to primary health care, Melissa is a Registered Nurse, and worked in a busy suburban General Practice for over half of her life. During this time, she completed her Post-Graduate Diploma endorsed with Long Term Conditions. 

Moving to Compass Health in 2015, she became a LEAN practitioner, more recently taking on the role of Health Care Home Programme Lead. Both of these roles are stimulating, offering as they do the opportunity to implement a new model of care essential for the future proofing of General Practice, whilst – crucially -  staying responsive to the needs of patients.
