Our Team

As  a GP Federation, we have an ambitious Board and Management Team that represents our GP partners:

Kate Brentley - Managing Director

Kate is passionate about delivering transformation, innovative change that delivers quality services and value for money. She has over 14 years' experience, planning and delivering education, community and healthcare services within the public sector. Her experience includes developing and delivering national programmes to support key NHSE agendas, successfully bidding and mobilising local healthcare services.

Kate is currently supporting Federation and Confederation development through her acute understanding of business development, governance and operational management. When she isn't managing a Federation, you'll find Kate in the great outdoors embarking on her next strenuous outdoor challenge!

David Cowan - Care Navigation Lead

David's enthusiasm for supporting health professionals and organisations to improve public health is unparalleled! As our Care Navigation Lead, he has played a key role in developing the care navigation model of care at West Wakefield, through to its development of a nationally recognised training programme that is firmly embedded within the GP Forward View.

As part of his work, David has also designed and implemented a successful social prescribing model and patient pathway, developing appropriate assessment tools, data collection and analysis methods in the process. He is a Lead Facilitator for the Social Prescribing Network for Yorkshire & Humber and the North East of England.

Russell Houghton - Business Intelligence

Russell started his life in the NHS in 2012, starting as an apprentice at one of our member practices. Since then, he has gone on to develop a true talent for developing and improving new care models; all through the use of data to enhance patient care.

Over the last year, Russell has developed an innovative range of business intelligence solutions for our GP Federation especially as part of the NHSE MCP vanguard programme. When Russell isn't creating wizardry with complex data sets, you can find him playing tennis.
