Dr Kasheen Alam - Clinical Lead (Diabetes and Frailty)

Educated locally at King Edward VI High School for Girls, Dr Khasheen Alam (MBChB ((Birm)) MRCGP DRCOG DFFP) studied Medicine at the University of Birmingham from 1997 to 2002.

After completing her GP Training with the South Birmingham VTS Scheme in 2008, Khasheen joined Burbury Medical Centre in 2009. The practice is in Lozells, an area of high social deprivation. She then joined Queslett Medical Centre in Great Barr,  as a female partner in 2013, and now works at both practices. This allows her to see a spectrum of medical conditions and needs across differing parts of the City. 

Khasheen’s interests lie in Women’s Health, Diabetes, End of Life Care and Commissioning Services. She has worked with CCGs as a member of the Quality Improvement Committee, and currently is one of BSol’s Diabetes Leads.

Since joining the SDS MyHealthcare Federation in 2016, Khasheen has been actively involved in setting up Frailty MDT clinics and developing the Diabetes MDT.  Khasheen has led the successful delivery and expansion of these services.

From 2009-2016, Khasheen worked as a GP Research Champion for the Primary Care Research Network, based at the University of Birmingham. She is very passionate about research, and enjoys participating in high level Primary Care Research.

In addition, Khasheen has been working with the new Aston Medical School as a mentor and she has been involved in their first Medical School interviews this year. The Practice is looking forward to teaching students in the coming year. 

“I care about the future of General Practice,” Khasheen told us, “and would like to see Federation Practices working collaboratively to provide the highest standards of care for our differing patient populations across the City.”
