gs1_uk_discover Juliette New

Engagement manager

I joined GS1 UK in 2014 to help NHS Trusts follow the eProcurement guidelines published by the Department of Health and understand how GS1 UK can help them. This includes making GS1 standards central to the entire healthcare sector – and its supporting supply chains and help Trusts deliver safe and cost-effective care for their patients.

Before joining GS1 UK, I’ve worked in the healthcare sector for over 10 years, spending most of that time at Haemonetics, the global leader in blood management services, and CHKS, part of Capita Health and Wellbeing.

I have spent most of my up bringing in Kenya and like Dr David Livingstone my heart is still in Africa.
