I have over 10 years experience as an analyst working within the NHS, working in a number of provider trusts and within the Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit.
I have a background in Computer Science and Pure Mathematics, graduating from The Open University with first class honours.
I’m an active member of the NHS-R Community and a Senior Fellow in the NHS-R Academy.

This model was then given a web user interface so people could interact with the model.
I also had the pleasure of helping out in two other workshops: “Reproducible computation at scale in R with
by Will Landau and an introduction to “Artificial Neural Networks in R with Keras and TensorFlow” by Leon Eyrich Jessen.
Both of these sessions were fantastically informative and delivered expertly.
This is the 4^th^ NHS-R conference, and I have been lucky enough to attend all of them. Each year they get bigger and better, as can be seen by the incredible line up of speakers from this year (including stars like Prof. Frank Harrell and Julia Silge). I can’t wait for next years conference!
A number of individuals from the NHS-R community (Simon, Chris R, Chris M, Tom S, Zoe, and myself) collaborated to build an R package to implement the “Making Data Count” SPC rules and charts. The goal was to replicate the functionality provided in their excel tool.
We have just reached version 0.1.0 and published the package to CRAN. You can install it yourself by running
