About Suad Elyas:

Flexible, experienced, independent, result and relationship-driven family physician. 12+ years of experience in medical diagnosis, treatment, data interpretation, conflict resolution, psycho-social, and behavioural management with patients, peers, and senior leadership to provide superb patient care. A true professional with refined skills in communication, compassion, emotional intelligence and time management resulting in efficient and effective patient care. Consistentlyproven drive and skill set excelling in fast-paced medical and leadership roles, enhancing a healthcare company’s ability to maintain and improve high quality patient care. By regularly collaborating with multidisciplinary teams, I provide up-to-date, comprehensive, personalised, and holistic advice and management to patients, families and staff. Advising and managing the physical, mental, and emotional health needs whilst building trust and lasting relationships.


An integral part of the team, and often the only doctor in a very busy practice – I often see >30 patients a day plusemergencies with excellent diagnostic, clinical and time-management skills. I perfected my balance between providing compassionate, person-centred care whilst being speedy and maintaining accurate record-keeping.

+ From the anonymous feedback of 30 colleagues of the MDT (multi-disciplinary team including managers, nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals), 87-94% rate me as excellent in: clinical knowledge, keeping up-to-date, reflective of practice, maintaining good relationships with patients and colleagues, clear and accurate record-keeping, proactively helpful, a team-member, with time management and organisational skills. A summary of the comments:

‘Clearly a fantastic doctor with up-to-date knowledge and good communication skills’

‘It’s great to have her around!’ ‘Dr Elyas is very caring, thorough, compassionate and empathetic - she will be an excellent addition to any company; not only bringing her knowledge but able to contribute with new ideas owing to her previous experience’

‘Dr Elyas is very considerate and caring with her patients, she ensures that they feel listened to and cared for whilst explaining realistic treatment goals and expectations. She works well within the MDT and has a fantastic knowledge base that she is happy to share’

+ From the anonymous feedback of 46 patients chosen at random, 87-95% rate me as excellent in: making them feel: listened to, relaxed, involved in decisions, confident in my knowledge, caring, clear about the next steps,confidential, honest and trustworthy. A summary of the comments:

‘Can't praise this doctor enough. Explained everything, took care and time, made sure I understood. Perfect’

‘Dr Elyas covered an enormous amount of my medical & personal circumstances with thorough questioning in an extraordinary quick, concise & professional manner. If only I could be half as good at my job as she is at hers.’

+ SAFEGUARDING LEAD - I improved the teams’ coding of the most vulnerable patients and also developed an effective IT-based framework for meeting discussions. By proactively arranging and facilitating regular meetings between the MDT, I used time and relationships as effective tools in changing mental schemata. Closely engaging with key stakeholders and using simple, reiterated propositions meant an accelerated rate of adoption and a unanimous change in practice. By presenting the findings on a wider scale, a ripple-effect of innovation was created.


+ CLINICAL SUPERVISOR - Students, junior doctors, paramedics, nurses, pharmacists, and physician associatesdiscuss the cases that they find difficult with me. Through informal and formal meetings, I support their progression and oversee clinical decision making. Anonymous feedback from the MDT included:

‘A very good clinician who engages in self-development and contributes to the clinical development of the team’

‘Very good communication skills and works well as a team/professional and approachable at all times’

‘Suad is a very friendly, approachable and encouraging colleague who is keen to teach more junior colleagues’


+ During the covid pandemic I was instrumental in foreseeing and solving issues on a national level. For example, I suggested that oximeters be collectable from the surgery to allow remote monitoring. This slashed time andadministration costs whilst reducing fears all the while ensuring a streamlined maintenance of safe and high-quality care. By proactively attending national MDT meetings, such strategies were adopted on a national scale.



PERSONAL MENTOR, Brighton Medical School​​    2020-Current

+ I am solely responsible for ensuring that the financial, emotional and educational wellbeing of six medical students is of a good standard.

+ By proactively encouraging one-to-one group meetings, and building rapport, the students confide in me and have expressed that my support has been invaluable, particularly during their difficulties.

+ Overseeing development by using personalised SMART plans and attending regular University meetings


 LEAD DOCTOR at NURSING HOME, Sussex​​​         2018-2021

+ As sole responsible doctor for 20 elderly and vulnerable patients, I analysed and interpretated clinical and laboratory data and consulted with staff to reach a confident diagnosis and plan despite challenging circumstances due to multifactorial limitations.

+ I played a pivotal role in detecting the unknown unknowns amongst frontline staff. I discussed issues sensitively with them, established procedures, and finally oversaw the necessary training in collaboration with managerial staff. I tactfully mitigated risks, optimised care and increased the confidence of patients and staff. My overarching and consistent goal when facing issues is to offer and collaborate on practical solutions without blame. I consistently achieve this with great success.

+ I individually developed and successfully implemented Standard Operating Procedures to frame communications. This effectively stream-lined and reduced the workload, optimised safety, and increased the confidence and understanding of nursing staff.

+ By communicating clearly and compassionately with patients and their families, I fostered an environment of person-centered care whilst using evidence-based treatment plans.

+ I managed safeguarding concerns holistically with patients and sensitively with staff with adequate follow-up and MDT involvement, thereby ameliorating care.
