I strongly believe that Information Governance supports better and safer patient care and increases customer satisfaction by providing a framework for using and sharing information in a safe and lawful manner. I am a proud husband, NHS staff, traveller to the Far East and Asian food lover.

In my spare time I like travelling around South-east Asia (especially Indonesia), cooking Indonesian food, and studying trends health informatics development in the Fareast.

People say that you can learn so much when travelling the world. That could not be any truer in my case: back in 2008 I met my wife while on holiday in Indonesia. She is of Chinese origin, but her family lived for generations in Jakarta. We got married there in 2009 and now live in London where she is working as a nursery nurse.

I have worked within IT for over 13 years. I developed a passion for promoting Information Governance as a key enabler of sharing patient data in a save an effective manner and to increase the satisfaction of clients receiving services in the modern fast paced care settings. I also have an interest in RFID technology in healthcare.

I am working as Head of Information Governance. I gained experience in merging Information Assurance functions as part of a merger by acquisition of an insolvent NHS Trust. I am leading a team of 6 information assurance staff covering areas such as data protection, confidentiality, IT security as well as access control and identity management.

I am keen to explore new opportunities and share ideas. Contact me if you are interested to show me how to improve your security and resilience.


My professional interests:
I have a keen interest in using RFID and barcode technology to improve the safety and efficiency in healthcare. My work within the Caldicott Guardian network enhanced my understanding of the use of clinical and personal data to provide the best care to patients, vulnerable members of our society and public health in general.

I am also interested in using social media to improve disaster relieve efforts, sports and travelling and much more.

I am a professional member of the British Computer Society and joined the North London branch committee.
