Jalak Shukla – HSJ Clinical Leader of the Year

Federated4Health is delighted to share the news that Jalak Shukla, our lead clinical pharmacist, has been named as the Clinical Leader of the Year at the HSJ Awards.

The annual HSJ Awards recognise healthcare service excellence in the UK and importantly provide a well-deserved thanks to the sector.
The judges praised Jalak for her ‘outstanding implementation’ of embedding pharmacists in general practice which ‘clearly encouraged others to overcome challenges in leadership, moving to more professionally diverse clinical leadership in primary care’.
Dr Will Zermansky, Medical Director for Federated4Health said ‘We are delighted with the national recognition for Jalak’s hard work, dedication and innovation. Her exemplary leadership has resulted in establishing an extremely effective pharmacy team, with her approach being adopted as best practice beyond Haringey. We are so proud of Jalak and her team.’
We are also very happy to share that Federated4Health’s Clinical Pharmacy Team was shortlisted for ‘Workforce Initiative of the Year’.
Clinical pharmacists are a key part of the general practice team in Haringey’s primary care networks, working alongside GPs and nurses, seeing patients and using their expertise to get the best health outcomes for people from medicines.
We are delighted to see our team receive this well-deserved recognition at the HSJ Awards.
Congratulations to Jalak and all our clinical pharmacy colleagues.

Vaccine sites up and running in Haringey

Since December, residents across Haringey have been receiving their Covid19 vaccinations at clinics in Bounds Green and Lordship Lane.

First to receive their vaccines were older people across the borough and frontline health and social care workers. Federated 4 Health has been working closely with GP Practices throughout Haringey to coordinate the vaccination programme here in Haringey.

The team at the London Islamic Cultural Society – the biggest mosque in Haringey – were among the first to recognise the huge effort that is taking place to make sure everyone in Haringey receives the vaccine. Their generous donation of lunch for vaccination staff at the Lordship Lane Primary Care Health Centre was welcomed by Dr Russell Hearn on behalf of the whole team.

Imam Ajmal Masroor from the Mosque accompanied his elderly mother during her vaccination appointment this week. You can see their experience and hear the Imam’s encouraging words in a video he has published on YouTube:

Haringey Mayor Councillor Adam Jogee also took time out of his busy schedule to pay a visit to the hard working team at the Lordship Lane vaccination centre. After his visit he recorded a special message to the people of Haringey encouraging us all to have the vaccine as soon as it is offered.
