Alison Tavaré

Clinical Lead, NHS@Home SW and Primary Care Clinical Lead
West of England Academic Health Science Network

Alison is a GP by background and clinical lead with the NHSE SW Learning Disability and Autism team where she has established the South-West Learning Disability Collaborative. The SWLDC is a network of clinicians, carers, families, and experts by experience who work together with academics and policy makers to improve outcomes for people with a learning disability. As part of this she is a co-author of RCP and BTS guidance on the management of the unwell patient with learning disabilities.

Alison is also the primary care clinical co-ordinator at NCEPOD (National Confidential Enquiry for Patient Outcomes and Deaths). A recently published report ‘Time Matters’ on out of hospital cardiac arrests confirmed the value of prompt CPR and she is keen to enable by-standers to know what to do in an emergency.

In addition, she is clinical lead at the West of England AHSN and NHSE SW regional clinical lead working on the evolving NHS@home.
