Gabrielle is a third year medical student at Imperial College School of Medicine (ICSM). She sits on the ICSM Student Union as Vice-Chair of Welfare and has led multiple campaigns including re-launching Medics Of Imperial - a page which aims to promote conversation around the issues that medical students face daily.
As an alumni member of the NHS Youth Forum and a member of the NHS Assembly, she acts as an advisor to NHS England and NHS Improvement with regard to their implementation of the NHS Long Term Plan. During her time on the NHS Youth Forum, she acted as representative to the Young People’s Health Coalition and worked with the producers of the MH2K report.
Through these, other roles, and her own healthcare journey, she has developed a keen interest in children and young people’s experiences of care; particularly in safeguarding procedures and achieving a parity of esteem between mental and physical health.
