I am a Commissioning and Contracts manager of Adult Social services at Liverpool City Council. Part of that role is as the innovation network lead which looks at innovative ways of delivering care against a decreasing budget and increasing needs. I have led the Liverpool involvement in the EU STOP&GO programme. Through this programme, I digitalised Liverpool Domiciliary Care services (value £16M+) and introduced a LoRaWAN network and IoT sensors into the current services delivered by a range of in house and external care providers. I lead the DCMS 5G CreateTest Bed and Trial for Liverpool City Council social services.
Previously I had been in Citizen Advice Bureau management for 19 years at both local bureau and regional level. I have always been driven by a strong sense of social justice and working with the most marginalised in society heightens my awareness of inequalities in society especially with the current financial challenges to household and public budgets and the need to lessen the digital divide.
Through my passion about improving the quality and equity of public services I am also a member of Food Standards Agency (FSA) Advisory Committee on Microbiological Safety of Food and a member of the Campylobacter group working on a report looking at how to control Campylobacter in food supplies. I am the Vice Chair of the Liverpool Central Local Research Ethics Committee and a core member of the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Public Health Advisory Group. I am also a member of the UK5G Connected Places working group
