Phidelma Lisowska - Joint Staff Committee

Phidelma Lisowska

I have worked in the NHS including hospital and community dentistry as well as private practice. My employment at KCH has involved working as a Senior Clinician, Specialist and Honorary Teaching Posts.

My contributions include building up a dental service for adults and children with complex medical, social and psychological needs at KCH and the community setting, as a seamless service. I have an interest in solving complex problems, including access to services for vulnerable adults and children and multi-disciplinary team working.

My role as BDA Representative for the Joint Staff Committee has provided great insight into the ethos of KCH as well as the process and complexity of hospital governance. I enjoy working at KCH because there are opportunities for innovation to solve complex clinical issues and improve the quality of patient care. My family lived in Lambeth for ten years and our daughter was born at KCH.
