PCT Medical Director, General Practitioner
NHS Nottingham City
Dr Trevor Mills has been an inner city GP for over 25 yrs. An experience GP trainer and post graduate educator he became involved in commissioning and clinical governance 10yrs ago. During that time he has been GP prescribing lead, mental health lead and more recently long term conditions lead for the PCT. He has been an advocate of skill mix in health care and in developing the role of specialist nurses, especially in community and primary care. He became Medical Director in 2008 and champions the drive for quality, evidenced based health care; underpinned by robust continuing medical education. This post has given him experience of monitoring patient safety, quality assurance and clinical performance. Trevor is a Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners.
Trevor intends to use his 3 yr NICE Fellowship to promote the work of NICE, and its suite of products, amongst the new GP commissioners, as well as the various healthcare providers in the Nottinghamshire area and the East Midlands generally. His priority will be ensuring a good understanding of the importance of the new NICE Quality Standards within the changing NHS environment; together with the NHS Outcomes Framework, they will impact on all facets of commissioning and provision. His work will facilitate partnership working between primary, secondary and community care lead clinicians on the clinical effectiveness, clinical variation and service development agendas. Trevor's work will not forget mental health providers, local authorities and third sector organisations who he also hopes to get involved. Finally, he will be promoting the NICE message to front line GPs at all stages of their careers. Trevor believes that quality healthcare can only be achieved if the clinical workforce is engaged, educated and enthused; he hopes his Fellowship will be helped by this conviction.
