Steve Turner career and experience:
I began my professional career as a nurse in 1984, eventually specialising in mental health.
I spent a decade working on clinical systems for American giant Shared Medical Systems, progressing from project manager to Senior Strategic Services Consultant of the U.S. arm of the company.
In 1999 I returned to work for the NHS, successfully revamping the Information and Technology department at an NHS Trust prior to a trust merger. A spell in consultancy for a large Cancer Network followed, by leading two highly successful multi-organisational projects.
More recently I have led a successful interdisciplinary, multi-organisational prescribing project and the development of a parent held medicines record for children with complex conditions. My Associates and I have also developed, and successfully piloted, ‘patient led clinical medicines reviews’.
I am a NICE Medicines and Prescribing Centre Associate, sharing related information /guidance & learning with a diverse group of NICE Affiliates, and documenting outcomes.
In 2015, after a difficult whistleblowing experience, I founded the Turn Up The Volume! movement and speak out for patient safety through transparency, values based leadership and a just culture. (www.tutv.org.uk).
We have held two successful national events, bringing together people from all areas in an atmosphere of trust and learning.
