Dr Laura Pogue

I have a portfolio career working as a GP Partner since April 2015 and for St Helens CCG as Clinical lead for mental health. I worked for 15years as a GP with special Interest in mental health, supporting primary care services. I implemented The Positive Mental Training programme (mindfulness based hypnotherapy programme) across Halton and St Helens. I have worked with our local Personality Disorder Psychologist delivering educational sessions for local clinicians. Recently I have been involved with a regional suicide prevention strategy.

My work has received endorsements from the RCGP, WONCA and NICE. In the past I have worked with PRIMHE and The Priory Hospitals supporting educational meetings. I have worked as Director for a Social Enterprise Company, The Wellbeing Project, which won the mental health prize for Innovation in Mental Health in 2010.

I have been a GP trainer for 8 years and have set up a mentoring support group for current and past trainees. I have completed a Lancaster University (UCLAN) course for GPs called PED (professional education and development) and have my PGCE – having embraced the benefits of a student card!

My newest role is as a Primary Care Medical Educator for the Wigan GP trainees programme since September 2018 and I am learning how to engage and teach millennials.

My spare time is spent travelling with my family, playing tennis, singing and chairing a local residents association.
