Alan joined the ACG System Team in April 2013. In his role as Director of User Support, Alan’s primary responsibilities include supporting users, collaborators, and team members in maximizing the use of the ACG System. He also coordinates the UK Team in facilitating applications of the ACG System in the UK NHS. A registered nurse by background, Alan has over 30 years’ experience in the UK National Health Service (NHS) in clinical, operational and project management posts within hospitals and primary care. He has a keen interest in the use of information to support managerial and clinical decision-making and to inform improvements in the provision of patient-centred services. Between 2010 and 2013, Alan led a project to implement the ACG System across 600 GP Practices in the south of England. This role supported clinicians in optimizing the use of risk stratification information to inform clinical programs such as case management and integrated care teams. He also worked with Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to use risk stratification to support commissioning activities. As a firm believer in sharing experience and expertise across the NHS, he established both the Southern England and national UK ACG System User groups to facilitate conversations and shared learning among NHS users of the ACG System.
