My name is Mhari Martin and I am delighted to be the latest addition to the House of Care team at The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland. I am taking on the role of Evaluation and Policy Assistant and will be working alongside a talented group of individuals to implement a more person-centred approach to health and social care in Scotland. For more information about the project please see http://www.alliance-scotland.org.uk/what-we-do/projects/scotlands-house-of-care/
I have recently graduated in International Relations from St. Andrews University where I focused on human rights. I have also spent time studying Public Policy at Brown University, in the US.
I am keen to enable individuals with long term health conditions to be more involved in managing their condition and treatment. Married to a type one diabetic, I really appreciate the importance of self-management and of empowering people to achieve the best quality of life possible. I am excited to be participating in a project that could make a real difference.
With three successful early adopter sites already under way, I am looking forward to being part of the team that takes House of Care even further.
