Philippa Kirkpatrick

Chief Digital Information Officer

Before joining the NHS, Philippa held senior leadership roles in the Australian healthcare system.  Her vision is for digital health to be an enabler, facilitating the delivery of person-centred care by breaking down silos in the provision of health and care. Philippa is passionate about reducing inequalities in access to healthcare, and in ensuring healthcare is culturally sensitive and accessible to all members of our diverse population.

She recognises the importance of digital health in enhancing evidence-based decision-making, and she looks forward to driving forward initiatives at regional and local level that make available data to generate insights that can improve the quality of care to everyone in south east London and beyond.
