Patient & public members
Former nurse, now public member of King’s College London
Helen has been involved with KIS since 2015, contributing to various forums, events, projects, reports and operational team meetings. Helen is a former nurse with specialist experience in community health, in the UK and overseas. Like many who become involved in PPI work, it is as a result of personal incidents that she became involved in opportunities to improve services to benefit identified needs. Helen has a ‘Library of Lived Experiences’ to draw from being deaf, a patient and a carer enabling her to share insights and mixed skills in NHS PPI initiatives and with other health and educational organisations. She has a particular interest in co-partnership and co-productive working, inclusive accessible communication, including digital health, and remote consultations and current research projects for improving public health.
