Midlands Analyst Network and Huddles

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.

Fortnightly Huddles

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.
