Louise Brady: national executive

Louise Brady

Working in partnership with key stakeholders, Louise is responsible for leading the development, implementation, and delivery of a city-wide general practice nurse education and training programme. The programme provides mentorship, clinical supervision, and guidance to experienced staff and nursing students.

With 19 years of NHS experience, Louise has enjoyed working in clinical, supportive, and educational roles. These include working on medical wards, in community nursing, in A&E and in a multidisciplinary long-term conditions team.

In 2015, Louise was voted as one of HSJ’s rising stars for her dedication, passion, and commitment to supporting general practice nursing, and her partnership with local patient groups. In recent years, she has represented nursing views in the Greater Manchester NHS Values group, who share her commitment to changing and transforming hearts, minds, and culture in the NHS. She has a special interest in education and health literacy at population level.

Louise still works in general practice clinically, and enjoys her strategic role alongside day to day care. She currently sits on the Greater Manchester Primary Care Transformation board, supporting the voice of primary care nursing across Manchester CCGs. Louise also works as a community volunteer, supporting local residents. Her passion lies in partnership work with patients, carers, and communities. She believes that working in partnership will drive fundamental changes within the NHS and drive up quality and patient safety.
