Pete Waddingham

Programme Manager AHSN - Yorkshire & Humber AHSN, part of the AHSN Network
Pete is a Programme Manager working in the Enterprise and Innovation Team at Yorkshire & Humber AHSN. He has a keen interest in digital innovation and is a strong advocate for the use of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and has experience in developing automation processes. Within the Yorkshire and Humber region, Pete is connecting with NHSX and ICS Digital and Clinical Leads to scope opportunities for RPA and recently organised an event looking at the potential to achieve efficiency savings within the NHS and Social Care. As a previous Commissioner Manager working in the NHS, and Project Manager in the Local Authority, he is keen to build relationships across different ICS settings to explore how RPA can maximise efficiency savings and improve care. Through his work with the Cancer Alliances, Cardiac Networks, and other Elective services, such as Musculoskeletal, he is helping systems think about the opportunities of this technology in direct patient care and also how this can contribute to NHS Net Zero (Carbon) targets.
