Mr Paul Townsend is a developer within the CI team. He graduated with a degree in Chemistry with Management Science from Imperial College, London. He then went on to work for a leading accountancy firm in London before moving to Cambridge where he joined The Relationships Foundation, the think-tank for a better connected society. Here, Paul was involved in developing the Relational Health Audit, a psychometric scorecard that helps assess the quality and diagnose the state of relationships in the context of a group, an organisation, between organisations, or simply between individuals, applying pilots in various contexts.
After obtaining an MSc in Computer Science, Paul developed an application to manage all aspects of The Cambridge Personal Radiation Monitoring Service, which is responsible for the management and processing of personal dose meters used for measuring staff exposure to radiation. He then created a collections application for Hampstead Museum compliant with SPECTRUM, the UK Museum Documentation Standard. Paul also developed an application to manage enrolment, classes and re-imbursement for the seven universities and colleges involved in the London MaP>IT (Mature People into IT) project, funded by the European Social Fund. He then worked on a project to process large volumes of data from a strategic road bridge in the East of England (stress, strain, temperature etc. from an array of sensors). He also developed an application for the Urology department at Addenbrooke’s Hospital to record all aspects of surgery, outcomes and follow-up for those undergoing radical prostatectomy with the da Vinci robot system.
He has worked in a health setting for the last 10 years developing and supporting oncology clinical systems. Now within the CCI team he has recently focussed on supporting the COSD submissions for Multi-Disciplinary Team meetings and pathology from CUH Trusts and he is contributing to the integration engine with a particular focus on diagnoses.
