Lead Enhanced Recovery Surgical Pharmacist & Honorary Clinical Lecturer, Manchester University Hospitals NHS Trust & University of Manchester
Ms Neetu Bansal is currently a senior surgical pharmacist at the Manchester University NHS Hospital Trust. She is the lead for enhanced recovery within the organisation. Ms Bansal is also an honorary clinical lecturer at the University of Manchester. Neetu was the first pharmacist in the country to be appointed as a National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) scholar in 2014. In this role, she undertook a quality improvement project demonstrating the benefits of pharmacist involvement in improving patient outcomes along enhanced recovery pathways. The results of this led to the implementation of an innovative surgical pharmacy service within the trust aimed at optimising patients both prior to and after surgery. Her research interests lie in developing effective peri-operative medicines optimisation strategies.
