Pete Thomas


Pete joined the Board as a Trustee in January 2016, following the diagnosis of his daughter Esme with cardiomyopathy in June 2015. Pete is Finance Director of NHS Digital (an arm’s length body of the Department of Health and Social Care) and is passionate about how better use of technology and data can improve care and enable patients and their families to take greater control in managing their condition. 

As a trustee he is particularly keen to ensure that children and families affected by the condition have access to the best possible care and support; and that by raising awareness amongst clinicians and the public, the charity can drive increased investment in improved care and new treatment options for all those living with cardiomyopathy.
