Dr Holly Middleditch

Mid and South Essex Integrated Care System
Senior Clinical Fellow 2023/24

Dr Holly Middleditch is delighted to be joining Mid and South Essex ICS as a Senior Clinical Fellow where she will be working on health inequalities, women's health, the primary/secondary care interface, and leadership development.

Holly joins MSE from her NMD Clinical Fellow year where she worked with the General Medical Council on embedding patient and registrant voice into new and revised processes, subject to legislative reform.

Holly is a Genitourinary Medicine specialist registrar at King’s College Hospital. She completed a degree in Economics and Politics at the University of Exeter in 2005 before going on to achieve her medical degree at St George’s, University of London in 2010. Holly has been a trainee representative for the Royal College of Physicians Genitourinary Medicine Joint Specialty Committee since 2022. She also acts as a mentor for the Student and Trainee Association for Sexual Health and HIV (STASSH) which aims to support career development and provide educational opportunities relating to Sexual Health and HIV medicine.

Holly is passionate about reducing health inequalities and improving health for marginalised communities; areas of particular interest include HIV in women, promoting equal access to healthcare, and reducing stigma in people living with HIV. She has a passion for Quality and Service Improvement and spearheaded a local COVID vaccination clinic for people living with HIV who were struggling to access vaccination, and also an award-nominated project under the global Fast Track Cities Initiative, providing a Stay and Play service for new and expectant parents living with HIV.

Reason for applying for the scheme

Holly is delighted to be joining the Senior Clinical Fellow Scheme, which provides another excellent opportunity to develop leadership skills in a supported environment. The focus on clinical leadership development at Mid and South Essex ICS gives a really fantastic opportunity for Holly to continue to develop her own leadership skills as well as her helping to develop those of others which ties in with her interest in mentorship and education.

Holly is really looking forward to being back in the NHS and able to focus on interventions and strategies that will directly impact the health and wellbeing of patients in a very tangible way. She is particularly excited to be able to target women's health, sexual health, and health inequalities as these are areas of great importance to her. Holly expects to gain a better understanding of how different parts of the health economy fit together, particularly the integrated care system partners, and looks forward to particularly to working with colleagues in primary care and the local authority as these are not areas that she has had much exposure to in the past.

Holly anticipates that this year will give her an unparalleled opportunity to understanding integrated working, funding of health and care, and population health management, which will be of utmost importance as she continues her future clinical leadership journey.
