Ambassadors' experiences

We asked a couple of current Ambassadors to write about their time in the role. Dr Deji Jaiyesimi, Ambassador for Hertfordshire and West Essex reflected on some of the benefits:

I know much more about what is going on at a population health level, not only in my local area but across the country as we have monthly meetings with other Ambassadors.... to equip us with the skills and knowledge to have greater impact in our areas... It's also opened my eyes to the paediatric population data that is out there, and how we can use this to make a case for services that we feel will benefit children and young people in our area.

And Dr Steve Jones, Ambassador for Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire offered some thoughts to someone considering applying for the role:

Go for it! Think about some of those big issues you’ve been working on and trying to improve in your own practice. Chances are others are trying to do the same thing. 

The Ambassador role can help bring people together, highlight solutions and - hopefully - get things done.
