Chief of Digital and Innovation and CIO
Sammut is relatively new to the NHS, having joined NWAS in December 2020, after spending 15 years in the private sector.
He has worked across healthcare, insurance, outsourcing, and finance in previous roles, which have included Business Intelligence Director at Health Management Ltd and Client Intelligence Manager at Capita.
"In terms of what I look after, it's pretty much everything from data sourcing right through to output analytics," Sammut says. "Data analytics has always been in my wheelhouse, but I've moved away from the commercial side of things more towards the actual care of people, which has been quite the transition. That's been quite an exciting journey in the last 10 months. It's a different way of thinking.
"It really opens up a lot of opportunities, especially when you're surrounded by people with the same sort of thinking in terms of doing everything for the patient, ultimately."
