Dr Javed Mohungoo won the Strive for Better award for introducing an innovative new service model and new technology into the North East and North Lincolnshire dermatology services.
Dr Mohungoo, Lead Consultant Dermatologist, was nominated by Joanne Howard, Head of Quality, for implementing the service model at the Cromwell Road Medical Centre and the Ironstone Centre. She explained, “The model provides a super-efficient, innovative workforce including consultants, GPs with a Special Interest, specialist dermatology nurses, dermatology surgical nurses and heath care assistants – all having the appropriate levels of clinical supervision and medical oversight.”
Dr Mohungoo also implemented new technology called teledermatology which allows healthcare professionals to send photos of their patients’ skin problems to the dermatology service to be reviewed by a specialist consultant with a response time of 24 to 48 hours.
Joanne’s nomination concluded, “Javed’s ambition is to work with our other dermatology services to increase their efficiency and performance and improve their workforce model to bring it in line with Lincolnshire. Javed certainly does live and promote the Virgin Care values and is ensuring that our dermatology patients are feeling the difference.”
