Realistic Medicine - National Clinical Advisor
I’m Catherine Labinjoh. I’m a heart doctor working in NHS Forth Valley.
As a heart doctor I think about how to prevent heart disease and how to care for people affected by heart disease. I’m interested in making sure we provide the kind of care people want so I’ve been involved in developing new services and changing existing services to promote care at home and I am interested in other aspects of service improvement too. I’m the clinical lead for the Quality Improvement Hub in Forth Valley and I am now the Realistic Medicine Lead in Forth Valley.
I’m interested in the education and training of healthcare professionals and related to that, I am a council member of the Scottish Cardiac Society and the clinical lead for mentoring at the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh. I sing in the doctors’ choir and grow fruit and vegetables in my allotment (I do neither very well but I enjoy them both hugely). I’m married to Andy and we have two grown-up children and a not very grown-up dog.View film Back
