Rebecca Fisher Senior Policy Fellow

Policy team

Becks joined the Health Foundation in September 2016, and is now a Senior Policy Fellow.

She leads policy work on primary care and general practice, and has a particular interest in equity in primary care provision.

Becks is a practicing doctor, and works two days a week as a GP in an area of urban high deprivation.

Prior to taking up her policy role at the Foundation, Becks spent a year as a National Medical Directors Clinical Fellow to Sir Bruce Keogh. She completed her GP training and an Academic Clinical Fellowship in Oxford, where her research focussed on effective delivery of out of hours primary care. Alongside these roles, Becks was a teaching Fellow at Green Templeton College, and subsequently co-founded Next Generation GP – now a national leadership programme for early career GPs. 

Becks did her medical training at the University of Cambridge, graduating with the Roger Morris prize for medicine and surgery.
