Athina Lockyer is a Programme Manager. Athina is dual qualified as a health visitor and adult nurse, and also has a PGCert in Leadership in Health and a Masters in Public Health Practice. She has also worked in quality improvement, digital record keeping and was a Darzi Fellow with Surrey County Council. Athina is passionate about co-production and working collaboratively to improve patient outcomes using innovations and technology. She works across the region to support the spread and adoption of new evidence based technologies and the Kent and Medway STP workstreams.
I joined the AHSN in November 2019 and support the Technology Navigation team and STP engagement in KSS.
I graduated from the University of Southampton with a MSc in Oceanography and spent my third year studying at the University of Washington in Seattle. I have always had an interest in healthcare as my mum is nurse, and prior to joining the AHSN I worked in the private healthcare industry.
Alison is a qualified procurement professional particularly interested in human centred design and systems thinking. She has an MBA which focused on partnership sourcing and collaborative working to create value for citizens, systems and products. More recently she completed a foundation diploma in art and design to see how creativity and systems thinking can be applied to help professionals to re-imagine and create a better experience for people from health and care.
Much of her work since 2007 has been with voluntary and community sector organisations whose clients includes people with learning disabilities, mental health, carer support, long term health conditions, older people and people living with a cancer diagnosis.
Alison has a portfolio of independent work as a graphic recorder and visual practitioner in a range of service improvement projects, including work with GP practices, NHS commissioners, social prescribers, British Red Cross, Age UK and Health Education England. Much of this is related to co-production and the re-design and development of services that are more aligned with what people genuinely need and want.
