Extra information:

I worked as an analyst for EHI Intelligence (now Digital Health Intelligence) and Kable, in both cases focusing on healthcare IT. Before becoming an analyst, I was launch editor of, 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 the public sector and IT for more than 15 years, 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.

I live in West Oxfordshire, David Cameron’s constituency, which I wrote about for the Guardian when he was elected Conservative leader.
