Dr Ian Wacogne

CCIO Network


Ian Wacogne has been a consultant paediatrician for 20 years, and has held clinical service lead and clinical director roles before becoming the CCIO ten years ago. He’s been involved in a number of IT developments in that period, but with a particular role in Covid with the rapid pivot to remote consulting and the need to keep a wide range of patients as safe as possible in challenging circumstances.

He’s worked closely with developers, again particularly in Covid, to stand up electronic requesting services to get the absolute maximum benefit for patients and clinicians. He has a particular interest in how we manage issues of digital poverty and exclusion for our most vulnerable patients.
