Meet the Hub Team

The KeepingWell North Central London Hub is made up of a small, dynamic, multi-disciplinary team of practitioners and operational support roles, all bringing their different experience to work together to connect and support NCL health and social care staff. 

You can find out about our team members, how they contribute to the Hub, and how you might come into contact with them as you use our services, below.

Hub Practitioners

If you attend an assessment, webinar, or team group or workshop with the Hub, this will be led by one of our Hub Practitioners. Our practitioners also do lots of work behind the scenes mapping and connecting the wellbeing support available for NCL staff, to make sure that we can help guide you to the right support for you.

Our Hub Practitioner Team is comprised of fully qualified clinicians and therapists using their many years of experience in a variety of roles across the health and social care sectors to support health and social care workers in all roles across NCL.
