Liz Cross


CLAHRC Fellow 2017


Liz qualified an advance nurse practitioner from South Bank Univerisity in 2013 and currently works in general practice. She won an NHS Innovation acorn award in 201/16 for her work using C Reactive Protein point of care testing in the management of lower respiratory tract infections in primary care. With that seed fund she has been able to extend the study out to 8 sites this winter within Hertfordshire. This summer she has focused on communication and promoting antimicrobial stewardship. To date she has written news articles, presented at RCGP and QNI conferences, reviewed a NICE MIB for the Alere Afinion diagnostic kit, and conducted two workshops in the House of Commons for MPs and peers. As a direct result of the workshops a number of MPs have tabled questions to the House.
