What I do

Annie is Director of the Health Lab at Nesta.

Prior to that Annie worked in various policy roles in the UK Government including the Cabinet Office Strategy Unit and No10 Policy Unit, providing analysis and advice to the Prime Minister and senior officials on a range of domestic policy issues.

Annie grew up in Yorkshire and loves to get up North to some hills when she can. She is currently attempting to learn how to play the ukulele but don't expect singalongs anytime soon!

Hands hold health placards
In 2017, we’ll see more people uniting to fight for better health and care, enabled by digital technology, and potentially leading to stronger engagement with the system, says Nesta Health Lab.
