Ep. 177 - Dr Julia Patterson
Dr Julia Patterson is the Founder and Chief Executive of EveryDoctor, a doctor-led campaigning organisation fighting for a better NHS for every doctor and every patient. Julia qualified from UCL Medical School in 2010 and became a Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in 2015. She took a break from her speciality training to set up EveryDoctor, and has now given up her GMC licence to practice, in order to devote herself fully to advocating for NHS staff and patients. She was a co-founder of the Junior Doctors Alliance (a group that spoke out against the imposition of the sexist new junior doctors’ contract in 2016), and most recently founded The Political Mess, one of the UK’s largest online political forums for all U.K. doctors. The Political Mess is an online community visited by an average 12000-15000 doctors every day, and serves as a platform for positive change. Dr Julia Patterson is guest number 177 on My Time Capsule and chats to Michael Fenton Stevens about the five things she'd like to put in a time capsule; four she’d like to preserve and one she’d like to bury and never have to think about again .
