Catherine Pollard -
Catherine is the Director of the Centre for Improving Data Collaboration at NHSX. During Covid-19, she led NHSX efforts to use technology to accelerate the integration of health and social care. This drew on her prior experience as the Executive Programme Director for an STP and as a policy director at NHS Improvement. She is an experienced healthcare professional and has also led work on provider digitisation, radical redesign of care pathways, financial recovery and capability building. Catherine is inspired by how data and new technologies can promote independence and person-centred care, and/or address the multifaceted workforce challenges the sectors face.
