Dr Andrew Dayani
Medical Director, Somerset Partnership

Andrew is the Medical Director at Somerset Partnership NHS FT, an integrated community and mental health trust. Before taking up this role he was a practising GP in West Somerset for 20 years, whilst also engaging in locality commissioning, medical politics and undergraduate education and research. As a former Trustee at St. Margaret's and Chair of the Education sub-committee, he has retained an interest in palliative medicine and end of life care in the county.

While his current role is largely concerned with medical leadership and quality improvement in secondary care services, he retains a keen interest in Primary Care and still practices medicine as an Occupational Health Physician. Andrew has recently been appointed as one of the new National Responsible Officer training facilitators.
