In 2012 she became the RCGP's first female honorary treasurer. During her first eighteen months as treasurer the RCGP had a dispute with a construction firm and successfully defended a legal challenge about examinations run by the college brought by the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (BAPIO). She had also spoken in favour of acupuncture, after published evidence led to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommending it as an option for the treatment of low back pain. She is a Governor at the Birmingham Women's NHS Foundation Trust, with a term of office that runs until October 2017.
