I hold the position of Head of Provider Programmes and Strategy at Healthcode Ltd, with lead responsibility for external engagement with stakeholders, including transforming the use of technology within hospitals and by clinicians. I build relationships with stakeholders such as regulators, NHS Digital, and NHS England. I am well respected within the industry and a vocal advocate of the use of technology to support healthcare professionals in delivering safe and timely care. Before joining Healthcode I was the CEO of AIHO – the trade association for independent healthcare, raising the profile of the sector and giving it a voice in the media, government and broader healthcare sector.
Prior to this I was the CEO of the Hansard Society, a political research and education think tank. In addition, I have worked in education, and had roles at the Red Cross and Age UK.
What you will bring to the Health & Social Care Council and the techUK Health & Social Care programme:
I am a confident, highly motivated individual with 15 years of senior management experience, 6 years of which in Healthcare. I believe I have the background and experience to support the HSC Council in promoting the interests of members operating in the HSC Technology Industry.
am very familiar with the process of influencing Government and other relevant bodies to inform policy and reform, having successfully led strategic campaigns on political education, parliamentary reform, independent healthcare and most recently on the use of technology to support healthcare professionals and organisations in delivering safe and timely care.
I have a friendly yet professional disposition and I am a confident public speaker, having delivered numerous, well received keynote addresses at industry conferences. I am comfortable with meeting and working with individuals from diverse backgrounds and experiences and follow a strategy of cultivating relationships with individuals and organisations, designed to drive and influence partnership and campaigning efforts.
I would relish the opportunity to join the HSC Council, to support TechUK and contribute to raising awareness of technology in the healthcare sector. I believe growing technological developments will afford TechUK and its members an ideal opportunity for growth and influence in the coming years.
