Why I work for Future Care Capital:
“I have oversight of FCC’s ‘engine room’ – with day-to-day responsibility for research, policy development and advocacy activities as well as leading on innovative collaborations with external partners, pilot project development and delivery. The transformation of health and care, so that our beneficiaries have access to services that are fit for purpose in the 21st Century, lies at the heart of our work. It is underpinned by a commitment to seek continual improvement in outcomes for individuals and communities against the backdrop of manifest inequalities as well as at a time when healthy longevity must be a priority if we are to take advantage of our ageing society.”
Annemarie is regularly interviewed and writes for the media about health and care policy as it relates to data, technology, and innovation. For example, she recently contributed to BBC Radio 4’s Analysis Programme and wrote this article for CityAM. Annemarie frequently speaks publicly on these topics and has recently spoken at events including a Guardian and Reform event about Making NHS Data Work for Everyone and a One Health Tech gathering about Establishing a Sovereign Health Fund.
