Ben Pumphrey

Head Of Legal / Data Protection Officer, ‎Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

I am currently the Head of Legal Services / Information Governance and Data Protection Officer for Birmingham Community Healthcare Foundation Trust, a large NHS community Trust providing healthcare services to patients across the West Midlands.

Keeping up is the fun part...
