Ross Lambdon – Project Manager

Meet the team

Ross graduated from the University of Portsmouth in 2014 with a BSc Hons in Politics & International Relations and began his NHS career in 2015.  Initially working as a Review Officer at Hounslow & Richmond Community Health Trust, Ross quickly moved up the ranks into Team Leader and Project Lead roles with Hounslow GP Federation.

More recently, Ross worked with Hammersmith & Fulham GP Federation as a Development and Project Manager working for three Primary Care Networks (PCNs) to develop and mature the networks into integrated models of care.  Project managing, recruitment, business development, contract managing, effective communication and improving patient engagement were priority areas for Ross during his time with the Federation.

During the initial Covid-19 outbreak, Ross crisis-managed the PCNs by enhancing collaborative working approaches including contingency planning to ensure service delivery and the safety of staff & patients was maintained across all sites.

After working in both Community and Primary Care settings, Ross is passionate to build and deliver neighbourhood-led communities to ensure all Lambeth residents (and those with the poorest health outcomes) receive high quality and easier access into the services they require.
