Rosie embarked on an events management degree after leaving school with a view of pursuing a career in events and events management post-graduation, however it soon became apparent to her that she wanted to follow a more rewarding path in the health and care sector.

It had always been a passion of Rosie’s to contribute to improving the lives of citizens across Nottinghamshire through improving health and care services, which lead to her taking a position of Business Support Apprentice in Nottinghamshire County Council’s Learning Disability Team. In this role she provided a vital support function supporting venerable adults.

She gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in several primary healthcare services, delivering high quality patient care which enriched the lives of local people and communities.

Focusing on her skills obtained through a magnitude of disciplines Rosie blossomed which led to a key support role within NHS Nottingham West Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), an NHS body responsible for the planning and commissioning of health care services within the Broxtowe district. This role covered numerous different departments within the CCG.
Due to her experience and adaptability across organisational departments and exposure to the cultures and challenges across the wider health and care system, Rosie has quickly risen through the ranks and soon secured a promotion in a Project Support Role working on the Connected Nottinghamshire Programme. This nationally recognised programme, identified as an exemplar site by NHS England, in supporting key transformational change across the whole of Nottinghamshire through delivering improvements in the digital enablement of health, care and patient facing digital services.
