Steve Worrall, Head of Business Development
I studied French and German at university and worked in the UK, Morocco and Germany before making a move into management consultancy. My background is in mergers and acquisitions, corporate strategy, business transformation, benefits realisation and business development. I have consulted to the National Health Service in the UK for over 10 years on technology-enabled transformation, including the use of analytics, telehealth and interoperability to achieve sustainable benefits, and I enjoy bringing a fresh pair of eyes, a strategic focus and a hands-on approach to every situation.
My focus now is to listen to customers’ priorities and challenges, and to support them in achieving their ambitions for the regulatory environment and the wider healthcare landscape in their own countries.
