Andrew Simpson

Computer Scientist, Software Engineer &
NHS Trainee Clinical Scientist

Hey! I'm Andrew, a Computer Scientist & Software Engineer currently training as a (Pre-registration) Health & Care Professions Council Clinical Scientist in the NHS. I am also available for freelance software development work & consultancy.

My healthcare science area is clinical physiological measurement, involving a wide range of clinical services such as intraoperative spinal monitoring in theatre, intracranial pressure monitoring in theatre & wards, urodynamics and sleep medicine. I work at the intersection of Computer Science, Healthcare Science & Clinical Engineering in Medicine, within the Clinical Measurement Section of the Medical Physics Department at The James Cook University Hospital.

Alongside this, I am undertaking a research MSc in Computer Science at the University of York's Human-Computer-Interaction research group with Professor Paul Cairns as my supervisor. My interests surround using technology to enhance direct patient care. I welcome working with computer scientists wanting to access healthcare professionals, or put research into practice.

I am the current Chair of BCS Teesside and a Chartered Engineer.
