My name is Nichola Goddard and in this blog I'd like to tell you about a regional DES networking day I attended and why I would encourage others to attend one in their region if they get the chance.
Nichola Goddard joined Public Health England (PHE) after spending time in commissioning and primary care organisations. She now works for the east of England screening and immunisation team, covering antenatal and newborn, diabetic eye and abdominal aortic aneurysm screening programmes.
She joined PHE’s predecessor organisation in 1998 and worked in communicable disease surveillance, followed by outbreak and incident response for diseases such as SARS, pandemic influenza and Ebola.
