She later worked as a senior analyst responsible for sexual health data. Maddy joined the PHE screening team in 2019 as national data and information manager for the infectious diseases in pregnancy and sickle cell and thalassaemia programmes. In her spare time she enjoys hiking, comedy nights and spending time with friends and family.
