Doug Stewart is our new Chief Clinical Information Officer, in a shared role with Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS foundation Trust.

Doug StewartDoug says, “A key benefit of having a Chief Clinical Information Officer sitting across two Trusts is opening up the opportunity for shared learning, at scale. Both organisations share much in common; from the delivery of health and care services to diverse portfolios, to having the same electronic health record, SystmOne.

Doug is a Nurse with nearly 25 years clinical and leadership experience, mainly within the NHS.

”I  have been a Chief Clinical Information Officer for the last eight years, the last four of which has seen my portfolio expand to include both clinical and business informatics (including performance) as well as the Development for technical services. I am a proud supporter of user-centred design and over the last four years have embedded design principles and built ‘product design’ teams to facilitate digital transformation within services.

He is a graduate of the ‘Digital Academy’, a Council member and Fellow of the Faculty of Clinical Informatics, Fellow of the British Computer Society, a ‘Leading Practitioner’ for the Federation of Informatics Professionals and an internationally accreted CHIME Health Chief Information Officer.

“I knew the previous CCIO, Dr Scott Galloway, and was always struck by the ambition and size of the Trust. I’m hoping there will be plenty of opportunities to work alongside the diverse portfolio of services that CNWL provide to deliver Digital at scale!”

Doug lives in Hampshire with his wife, Nicki and five children, two dogs. He is a keen dog walker, mountain bike rider as well as motorcycle rider- occasionally managing to do the odd ‘track day’! To counter the adrenaline, he’s starting to really enjoy gardening and pottery.
