From ballroom dancing to quoting Pantene advertisements, the National Health Informatics Service Manager at Icon Group, Kerrie Dennison is always excited to see what tomorrow brings and hopes the work her team does will make a difference to their patients’ lives.
What do you love about your job? And why?
My role is the National Health Informatics Service Manager. I love being part of something larger that is making a difference to our patients. My team analyses a vast range of health information and data to find opportunities for improvement. Our findings are then applied to continuously improve the delivery of care for our patients. The role has changed significantly in the last two years, which keeps me excited to see what tomorrow will bring.
How long have you been working in your current role?
Do you have a favourite quote or phrase?
It’s like Pantene… it may not happen overnight, but it will happen. (Unfortunately the younger people don’t know this television ad, which is making me feel old!)
What is something interesting about you your colleagues don’t know?
My husband and I met teaching ballroom dancing and then competed in ballroom competitions together for many years.
How do your friends describe you?
Caring, bubbly and (usually) very energetic.
What do you do in your spare time/any hobbies?
I love to run and let the days stresses go whilst pounding the pavement.
What is something you want to achieve this year?
My department has been through a lot of expansion recently to support the growth of Icon Group, so in a year’s time I would like us to be running like a well-oiled machine! We’ve brought on new people and had whole teams join what is now the National Health Informatics department. I would like to embed all the recent changes so that the department is supported in continuing to achieve the highest quality results for our team members and patients.
