I am an analyst and journalist, specialising in healthcare IT and management, particularly in the NHS. I blog on these subjects and others on this site.
In December 2012, I joined EHI Intelligence as its senior analyst, having spent a year as a healthcare analyst at Kable. I will also be working part-time as a freelance journalist: you can see previous articles on this site, or get in touch here.
Before becoming an analyst, I was launch editor of SmartHealthcare.com, relaunched it as Guardian Healthcare Network and then opened its sister site Guardian Social Care Network. I originally joined Guardian News and Media in February 2008 as news editor of Government Computing magazine, after editing Elsevier’s Infosecurity magazine.
I have written about healthcare and IT for well over a decade, as a reporter for Computing then as a freelance journalist for titles including the Guardian, Health Service Journal and Government Computing. This has included coverage of general computing issues, but I have had a focus on government and healthcare – both IT topics and management issues – for many years. Significant articles can be found through the portfolio pages linked to here and in the navigation bar, and through the map below.

I live in West Oxfordshire, David Cameron’s constituency, which I wrote about for the Guardian when he was elected Conservative leader. As well as blogging, I write for local community newspaper Chipping Norton News.
