Dr Matthew Fay is a GP who joined Westcliffe Medical Practice in 1999. This has developed in to the Affinity Care, a single partnership covering eight contracts and 65,000 patients. He is the clinical chief executive and is now based at The Willows in Queensbury, Bradford.
In 2001 Dr Fay established a GPSI cardiology service in Bradford, which has expanded to provide direct access investigations and e-consultations. He was a member of the NICE AF Guideline Development Group and is a standing committee member of NICE Quality Standard Advisory Committee. He is currently an clinical advisor to AF Association, STARS (the Syncope Trust), Arrhythmia Alliance, Anticoagulation Europe, on the expert advisory panel for the Stroke Association, the faculty for Heart Valve Voice and a trustee of AF Association and ThrombosisUK.
He has been involved in redesign of cardiovascular services with a focus on AF, dysrhythmia and moving services out of hospital for many years. He was the clinical lead of the redesign of the Bradford VTE services to make it completely community and NOAC based. He has previously worked in Bradford’s PCTs and CCG but is currently focused on forming a ‘superpractice’ in Bradford as the NHS remodels further.
As a father of four he insists that he is first and foremost a family doctor.
