Public Affairs Manager, Roche Diagnostics UK & Ireland
Jonathan is a commercially focused, enthusiastic and versatile leader highly experienced within the life sciences sector, with in-depth knowledge of market access, public affairs and the healthcare policy environment across the UK and Ireland. He has a strong track record of developing long-term strategic partnerships with NHS leaders, parliamentarians, charities and other key policy stakeholders.
In 2014, Jonathan was seconded into NHS England from Boehringer Ingelheim to support the Chief Pharmaceutical Officer with the Medicines Optimisation Programme. He was responsible for leading the Programme Management Office, and for stakeholder engagement, establishing and developing partnerships both inside and outside the NHS. He supported the development of the medicines optimisation dashboard and delivered a series of 14 roadshows across the country working in partnership with the AHSNs. The secondment lasted for nearly two years and was recognised by both parties as being the benchmark for future industry secondments.
Jonathan is passionate about working with partners across the healthcare system to improve the lives of patients through the adoption and spread of innovation across the NHS.
