About me

Rishabh is a GenerationQ Fellow and Primary Care Director, Health Education England East Midlands and GP Principal, Willowbrook Medical Centre.

As Primary Care Director at Health Education England East Midlands he has a dual governing and executive role with a budget of £360m. His role is to ensure that primary care has the right workforce, with the right training, available to implement the changes needed in the NHS.

As a GP, he carries out his practice work at Willowbrook Medical Centre, where he sees patients three days a week. He is also Vice Chair (and founder) of Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland Provider Company, which is composed of 316 GP principals; in addition, he is founder of MyRight Care Ltd, a technology company for sharing care plans. He is Chair of the End of Life Board for Leicestershire.

He maintains a research portfolio including development of new near-patient tests at De Montfort University, where he holds an honorary chair.

Rishabh, through GenerationQ, is interested in learning from others from a variety of different fields and industries, and in improving his ability to lead change effectively: ‘I have found myself in a leadership position through my desire to improve and adapt the existing system. I find myself increasingly at the forefront of significant changes in the delivery of health care locally, and regionally, and the programme would speak to that.’

His aim is to create a new model for delivery of general practice: ‘My driving ambition is to equip primary care with the ability to manage the changes in patient demand, on a background of reduced available workforce'.
