Head

Northwest Shared Infrastructure Service

I have worked in the NHS for 20 years this years. I have manged operational service such as, IT Infrastructure teams, IT Service desks, project teams and PMO offices for various trust across the Lancashire and South Cumbria footprint.

For the last 2 years I have been working as Operation Digital lead for Lancashire and South Cumbria ICS and I also hold the role as technical design architect for the northwest coast Local health and care record exemplar (LHCRE) which is named Share2care.

I have lived in the centre of Manchester for the last 12 years so with the role I now hold in Share2care I’m am working with colleagues in the Greater Manchester LHCRE team on Northwest use cases for record and data sharing.  For me this is my passion, providing all front line services from Acute to Care home, Ambulance services to Police with the right information at the right time is a priority for the NHS now and going forward.
