• Clare Cooke

    Lead Product Owner

    Digital Delivery Centre, NHS Digital

    Not having a clear idea of what career she wanted to pursue, Clare opted to study International Business & Technology at the University of Northumbria and graduated in 1997. After spending her sandwich year working at IBM in Germany, she decided that the IT industry was her best fit. Starting her career as a software tester at BT and then Green Flag Group, she moved into a test assurance role at NHS Digital (then The National Programme for IT) where she has worked in various roles ever since. Alongside her work at NHS Digital, Clare gained an MSc in Health Informatics from Erasmus University in Rotterdam in 2008. Clare is passionate about the NHS and improving patient care through IT.
