Dr Sam Fraser

Dr Sam Fraser is  Implementation Manager - Primary and Community Health Services for the ARC. She is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Darzi Fellow. With expertise in the field of mental health and system transformation.

Her particular interests are the development and delivery of innovative evidence based interventions for mental health disorders, stakeholder engagement / co-production and embedding new ways of working in Primary Care. Her most recent work has been to lead on a project- ‘Practise Hope’ which utilizes the vantage point of primary care as a way to better understand the system and make changes at scale in how we treat children and young people engaging in self-harm behaviours and expressing suicidality.

Working in co-production with 30 Primary Care practices across Kent, Surrey and Sussex (KSS), the third sector (Mind) and young people (aged 10-25) has required engagement with key stakeholders across KSS and beyond, including NHS England, Health Education England, Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships, Public Health, commissioners, providers, educational facilities and primary care. As a clinician and researcher she has directly contributed to improving patient care, and as a Darzi Fellow she has come to appreciate how to operate effectively in the wider system, extent influence and be an active agent of transformation.
