Skills and Experience

The following examples of work have all been completed within my current role within the NHS.


Clinical Portal Featured

A clinical portal, aggregating multiple patient records in to one complete record. With it's own framework, database, web services and the responsive website - the portal is unlike any other product on the market. Fast, flexible, modern and 100% designed and created in-house.

With features including:

  • Real-time Interactive Dashboards
  • Patient search
  • Patient record
    • Demographics, problems, allergies, appointments, attendances, admissions, visit details, documents and order results.
  • Real-time Ward View
  • Detailed Theatres View
  • Community (Localities)
  • Casenote Tracker
  • Scheduling View

Open Data API

The Clinical Portal was a huge leap for the Trust in terms of joined-up systems and integration, but the underlying web services that the Portal uses were built when web APIs were new to the world. That's why I developed the Trust Clinical Data API. With a familiar Twitter-style API and much more of a logical and fully documented structure than the initial version.

Trainee Doctor Handover (Web)

A web application to allow nurses to assign tasks to trainee doctors out of hours. The application allows the management of tasks and users and has a viewable audit trail. However, it is only half of the solution as the trainee doctors use an accompanying native Android app.


Staff Intranet

Much of the functionality of the Staff Intranet used by 4000+ members of staff was designed and/or created by me using skills such as C#, ASP.Net and the Ektron CMS.

Trainee Doctor Handover (Android)

An intuitve and stylish application for trainee doctors to use on Android mobile devices enabling them to efficiently manage their incoming work tasks for other users of the app or the nurses that use the web application.
