Caz has had a long-standing and varied clinical career including experience as a partner in general practice for over 30 years, setting up a company (Haverstock Healthcare Ltd) to deliver community-based services and as the elected and appointed chair of Camden Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) from its commencement in 2011 until 2017 when she completed her two elected terms. While Chair of Camden CCG she sought to establish a ‘value-based’ approach to commissioning healthcare leading the establishment of a range of community-based services integrating health and social care, underpinned by the development of a population health management tool segmenting the population by need and driven by patient-defined outcomes. The impact of this approach resulted in measurably improved outcomes for patients and reduced hospital usage with Camden performing above top decile for non-elective admissions.
She is currently developing a new role focussing on primary care workforce development and education and supporting implementation of new models of care alongside working through and establishing links with a range of organisations influencing health policy.
Caz’s wider involvement has ranged across a number of contributions (through inclusion on London Health Commission Board), various publications (most recently NEJM Catalyst ‘Towards Accountable Care: Achieving Value and Integration Via Population Health management’) to numerous national and international presentations including Hong Kong Health Convention 2015, Scottish Parliament 2015, Kings Fund 2016, European Innovations and Technology (EIT) 2017, FTI ‘Value-based contracting’ South Africa 2018.
