Erika is the National Clinical Director for Diagnostics at NHS England with responsibility for clinical leadership, advice and guidance across the NHS and covering all diagnostic services. Diagnostic services utilise 10% of NHS spending and over 1 billion tests are done every year in England.

 

From 2005-2013 Erika was been National Clinical Lead, and subsequently National Clinical Director, for Imaging at DH leading a complex programme of work across all aspects of imaging. This delivered considerable additional capacity for imaging services and marked reduction in waiting times. Her work has included cancer, paediatric, interventional, cardiac and forensic imaging.  In her roles in Connecting for Health she has led deployment of PACS systems across the NHS and is now leading the process to move PACS to local NHS ownership working with The Health and Social Care Information Centre.

 

Erika was previously Divisional Clinical Director for support services, Director of Breast Screening and Head of Radiology Training in Norwich. She continues to practice clinically two days a week and to publish in breast imaging and health care policy.
