Dr Steve Edgar
GP Partner and Chairman
I'm a fulltime GP partner at Millbrook Surgery in Castle Cary. We are an innovative small independent practice in a market town in Somerset. I qualified from The University of Sheffield Medical school in 2000. I spent 12 years in the Royal Army Medical Corps, initially as a Regimental Medical Officer then as a trainee in Anaesthetics and Intensive care before changing professional direction to become a GP. I left the Army and moved to Somerset in 2009. I’ve worked part time clinical and part time in commissioning and service improvement in Somerset for the past few years. I am convinced that everyone working in the NHS is doing their best to improve it but I think, together, we can do better!
The work I do has a direct impact on all the key results areas of the business. I have a passion for efficiency and value quality; driving excellence is my thing. This sees me continuously challenge the healthcare system to be better through my intellectual curiosity in finding solutions to the most pressing questions. I inject an entrepreneurial flair to everything that I do; driving me to find innovative ways to push healthcare delivery in new and exciting directions. I have led many successful complex transformation projects, earning me the credibility of getting the tough stuff done.
Having worked in commercial finance for most of my career, I "fell in" to General Practice in the NHS just as Covid began and have first-hand experience of running a GP Practice during the pandemic. I decided to return to a finance specific role and 100Fold was the perfect company to join to combine my accounting experience with supporting Primary Care in Somerset.
I am sure 100Fold can make a valuable contribution to Practice resilience, and support the Somerset PCNs to deliver their services and programs, including Covid Boosters.
Outside of work I enjoy walking, gardening and travel.
I have been working within HR for 6 years and have enjoyed the variety it involves. I have worked within the NHS, Care sector and Education, all have given me a great insight in the various challenges it can bring and safeguarding concerns. Within HR I have supported with administration, recruitment, first line advice and supporting the Safeguarding Lead.
I studied Health & Social Care Level 3 Extended Diploma at college and graduated with a triple distinction*. I am looking forward to being a part of 100Fold developing.
Outside of work I enjoy baking and walking my black Labrador.
Dr Joanna Davies
I qualified from St Mary’s London in 2002. Initially I went down the Medical Oncology route but I retrained as a GP after getting married. I qualified as a GP in 2012. After a short salaried position I took up a Partnership in Birmingham and established the practice as a training practice. I have trained a number of GP registrars since then and I actively seek out ongoing participation in medical education of peers and other clinicians.
In 2019, after the experience of covid, I felt the need to embrace digital technology and new ways of working and I joined 100fold in July 2022 as one of its first remote GPs whilst still based in Birmingham. I have enjoyed working with the exceptionally talented team at 100fold and feel very proud to have played my part in shaping this fantastically progressive organisation. In August this year I took.up a remote salaried GP position and menopause lead at Millbrook Surgery in Somerset. A position I would never have found had I not worked for 100fold. I am very pleased to be able to maintain my links with 100fold as a clinical lead supporting the recruitment, induction and ongoing training of new remote GP talent.
Aside from education, I have a special interest in women’s health and respiratory medicine.
I have worked within HR for 7 years, including recruitment consultant, administration and co-ordinator roles. Having achieved a high 1st-class BA (Hons) in Business with Human Resource Management in Manchester, I have been with 100Fold since it began in the latter half of 2021.
Joining 100Fold in the early stages was really exciting and I have enjoyed working to help the company evolve and develop; from planning routes for housebound covid vaccinations to setting up, recruiting for, and deploying the GP Flexible pool. I thoroughly enjoy the successful planning and delivery of services/resources and envision that we continue to be at the forefront of new contracts and initiatives to improve and support Primary Care in Somerset.
