This is Kate.
Kate is an analyst with a background primarily in the NHS but with brief interludes in the charity sector and insurance industry. She has worked across most types of NHS organisation, most recently in commissioning support but with a wide portfolio of customers, and a focus on the measurement of patient safety and the development of analytical capacity in the sphere of quality improvement. Kate’s strengths include the ability to ‘translate’ data related issues into plain English and she once programmed a neural network to recognise species of dogs.
Kate aspires to be a champion for the effective use of data within healthcare and spends lots of time thinking about how to get people who say they are scared of numbers to engage with them.
Kate enjoys gothic fiction, long walks and can occasionally be found stitching things. She is married to Kiran and has two large sons whose names also begin with the letter K, which makes for interesting discussions over post.
