Gabrielle is a member of the NHS Youth Forum and has consulted on the NHS Long Term Plan with the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Young People’s Health as well as directly presenting to Simon Stevens on the consultation work that young people were involved in during the consultation stages of the Long Term Plan. She also works as a Young Technical Advisor at the WHO Collaborating Centre for Public Health Nursing and Midwifery, which has a focus on maternal and child health. Gabrielle is the former Chair of the Young Persons’ Advisory Group at Birmingham Children’s Hospital (2015-2019). She will also be sitting on the newly formed NHS Assembly.
Through these roles and her own healthcare journey, she has developed a keen interest in children and young people’s experiences of care; particularly when transitioning between services, giving consent, receiving difficult news and in safeguarding proceedings.
Gabrielle is a third year medical student at Imperial College School of Medicine (ICSM), which affords her another perspective on the NHS. She sits on the ICSM Student Union as Vice-Chair of Welfare.
