Cheryl Davenport, Director of Health and Care Integration, Leicestershire County Council

Cheryl’s experience in health and care spans almost three decades. Originally an NHS graduate management trainee, her career has involved director level positions covering strategy and policy, commissioning, and business development, as well as regional leadership roles in consultancy and local government.

She is a pioneer in joining up health and care services in Leicestershire with a bold and ambitious role accountable to both the NHS and the county council. Cheryl has led the planning and implementation of Leicestershire’s multi-agency “Better Care Fund” transformation programme with a pooled budget of £52m.

Regarded as a thought-leader in her field, she is a trusted adviser to national and regional colleagues, with strong links to academia.
Cheryl is a digital champion, constantly seeking to improve people’s lives through better use of tech, information governance and the sharing of innovation.

She has been the driving force behind more integrated data, and its use in predictive analytics and prevention. She creates an environment where people can work together to make public services better – whether they’re from the NHS, local government, universities or research agencies.
Her recent work has included leading the award-winning Lightbulb project, which has integrated housing support across Leicestershire, to enable people to live more independently for longer at home.

She is also leading work to redesign falls prevention and treatment, addressing the immediate and long term health and care impact a fall this can have on an individual and the health and care system as a whole. This includes shaping the market for assistive technology and the Internet of Things.
