Chris Mainey

NHS England - Head of Patient Safety Measurement for Improvement

I am a senior Data Scientist in the UK National Health Service (NHS). I lead the analytical team in Patient Safety at NHS England, focussing on analysing incident reporting data and other sources to learn and improve patient safety. I have experience in public health, clinical networks, acute trust informatics, and lead the establishment of a data science team at Healthcare Evaluation Data (HED), a national NHS analytics service from University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust. I completed my PhD in applied statistics and machine learning at UCL in 2020, focussing on methods for analysing incident reporting data in the NHS using multi-level models, Generalized Additive Models, tree and random forest methods and natural language processing (NLP). I also have a strong interest in training and teaching.
