Keith started off in public health research before moving to east London in 1996 to work on one of the earliest GP data extraction programmes Sharing Quality in Data (SQUID) as part of the Healthy EastEnders initiative, establishing data sharing agreements with practices and using Miquest software to extract and feedback results.  In 2000 this, and other local support programmes formed the Clinical Effectiveness Group (CEG) which continued to support east London through templates, Emis web searches, local clinical guidelines and interactive dashboards.  Keith has managed this unit for the last 10 years and it now covers all of North East London, supporting over 300 GP surgeries, collaborating with the CCGs and London Borough Public Health units.  The CEG consists of around 40 staff including GP’s, locality facilitators, data analysts & informaticians and researchers
