26/10/2017 00:00 

UCLH has appointed a new divisional clinical director for integrated care.

Dr Lise Hertel will bring a wealth of knowledge to her new role, particularly in the areas of mental health, information technology and integrated care.

In the past she designed, set up and ran integrated services across health and social care boundaries such as rapid assessment, interface and discharge (RAID) services, and triage services.

She has also contributed towards expert reference groups on mental health and integrated care, and chaired several committees working on health policy and guidelines, such as a NICE committee on perinatal mental health and a committee on urgent care in the community. She has also contributed towards two public health initiatives on primary prevention of mental illness.

Lise has held many senior roles in healthcare. Most recently she has worked with the new care models team at NHS England. She has also served as mental health lead and board member for a CCG, children’s safeguarding lead, a GP appraiser and out-of-hours trainer, and the clinical lead for the North Central London Integrated Urgent Care Service.

At UCLH she will focus on leading integration across services and providers who work in partnership with us. This includes Camden, Islington, Haringey, Barnet, Enfield and Westminster CCGs, as well as engagement with community services and primary care, other acute trusts, mental health trusts and the third sector.

She said: “I am delighted to join the Integrated Care team to work in partnership with colleagues and welcome the opportunity to engage with teams at UCLH and North Central London. I hope to focus on frail and complex care, liaison psychiatry and all things mental and physical health.”

Lise welcomes your suggestions, do drop her a line if you have ideas for her to consider.
