Our Board are delighted to announce that Dr Sivanthi Sivakumar has joined HUC as our new Chief Medical Officer. Sivanthi has a clinical background incorporating General Practice, Emergency Medicine and Urgent and Unscheduled Care. Initially a GP in South London, she continued to develop her emergency skill set as a clinical trust fellow in a busy Emergency Department with a Major Trauma Unit. She now comes to HUC from a directorship holding clinical responsibility for several ‘front door’ Urgent Care services across London and the South East, in addition to leading on projects including COVID-19 response initiatives.

Sivanthi has a proven record of service improvement, driven by her strong belief in the importance of the quality of the patient experience; that patients should not only receive the highest standard of clinical care, but that they should also feel respected, involved and cared for. Crucially, Sivanthi recognises that this can only be achieved by a team that feels supported and invested in.
