Welcome to the Midlands Analyst Network
Thank you for being part of our growing community – we have many exciting Huddles planned for 2023!
If you are an analyst who works in health and care in the Midlands then join the Midlands Analyst Network!
The Network has well over 700 members from a range of health and care and other organisations and with representation from all members of the Midlands Decision Support Network. Established in April 2020 the Network provides a space for analysts across the Midlands to share information, ideas and resources, as well as seek advice and guidance from one another.
Your Network Lead: Rachel Caswell
Rachel is a Senior Healthcare Analyst in the Strategy Unit who is working to broaden the scope of the Network. Rachel is also the Operational Lead for the Network’s Training & Development Programme.
Rachel hosts a fortnightly online Huddle on MS Teams (see link below). The Huddles cover a large range of topics and you are very welcome to join one at any time – for quick access to a Huddle, just follow the link below. You don’t have to be a member of the Midlands Analyst Network to come to a Huddle but if you’d like to be kept up to date with all future Huddles and training opportunities then just contact Rachel and we’ll take it from there.
We try to keep them as informal but as informative as possible and welcome contributions from Network members as well from academia, subject specialists, national and occasionally international presenters.
If you have any queries about the Huddles, how to access them, if you want to find out what’s gone before, or you want to present then please do contact Rachel.

Midlands Analysts Network Huddles - Teams Link to the fortnightly Huddles, every other Thursday 11-12
I just wanted to drop a note to say how fabulous the huddles are, very informative, and you run them so well I really look forward to them.
“I would like to say they (the Huddles) have been an inspiration to me and brought a sense of the wider analyst community to my role which I previously was missing. This has been especially appreciated as I have working from home since March, so the sense of community and ‘all in it together’ is really valuable.”
