About Dr Sarah Jarvis:  
Dr Sarah Jarvis, MBE, GP and fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RGCP) trained at Cambridge from 1980 to 1983 and Oxford from 1983 to 1986. Becoming a partner of an inner-city general practice in 1990, she is now the resident doctor for BBC Radio 2, the One Show on BBC One and for numerous other shows and publications.  
In 2017, Sarah became clinical director of the Patient Platform Limited and of Patient.info, the website that provides patient health education to over 60 million people a year worldwide. As part of her role, she has developed an online consultation tool for use in the NHS – she also oversees all clinical aspects of the patient online service, Patient Access. 
About Dr Farzana Hussain:  
GP principal Dr Farzana Hussain has worked in the financially deprived area of Newham East London for the past 18 years. Her team has four salaried GPs who care for a patient list size of 5,000. Interested in medical education, she is a GP trainer, appraiser and coach. She also teaches medical students.  
Dr Hussain was recently appointed as a clinical director for one of the ten primary care networks. She’s also a GP federation board director, serves on Newham’s local medical committee (LMC) and sits on the council for the National Association of Primary Care. A mum of two teenagers, she’s also passionate about working collaboratively to improve the health of our communities.  

About Dr Bhupinder Kohli:  
Having qualified at Newcastle University in 1984, Dr Bhupinder Kohli has since worked for over 30 years as a GP in East London. Currently, he is a medical director for the four practices that form First 4 Health, a federation in Newham. He is also the chair for Patient First Social Enterprise, which provides community dermatology, minor surgery and musculoskeletal (MSK) services.  
As the GP IT lead for Newham CCG, Dr Kohli is keen to find ways for GPs to stay ahead in the digital NHS. He also aims to innovate in order to survive competition from online GP providers. These goals led Stratford Village Surgery (which is part of the First 4 Health Group) to deploy our Online Consult solution – a project that meant the practice was a finalist for the HSJ value award in 2019.
