Julia Coles

Senior Network & Domain Manager – Domain 2 & 3

Over a significant period working within the National Health Service, Julia Coles has a breadth of experience at clinical, professional and senior management levels.

As a Senior Network & Domain Manager in the Thames Valley Strategic Clinical Network, she has a responsibility for Domain 2 of the NHS Outcomes Framework, which has a particular focus on Long term Conditions; she also leads, with clinical colleagues, on End of Life Care. This role was preceded by various roles at the Strategic Health Authority (Thames Valley and South Central) and Department of Health (DH). Prior to this she held a number of senior nursing roles in intensive care and childrens services.

Whilst at the DH she contributed to the patient empowerment aspect of the Diabetes National Service Framework. Interest in this area has continued and been a feature of subsequent areas of responsibility such as leading the shared decision making programme across the South region.

Julia has always been interested and committed to patient partnership and empowerment, and is a passionate supporter of this approach for patients with long term conditions.
