Rebecca George OBE
Rebecca leads Deloitte’s Public Sector Health practice in the UK. She is responsible for all the work Deloitte does with the Department of Health and its ALBs, Health Regulators, and the NHS. In addition, she leads Deloitte’s relationships with the Department of Health and Monitor, with the third parties Deloitte partners with in Public Sector Health and in IT enabled propositions. Rebecca has wide operational and general business management, IT, business process re-engineering and HR experience.
Rebecca has worked exclusively with the Public Sector for over ten years. She has practical experience of the operational challenges public sector organisations face. She is particularly interested in the intersection of disparate organisations or sectors (e.g. private and public in the delivery of services), legislative or regulatory changes which require new processes, organisations or mergers in the public sector, and how to increase flexibility and innovation in the public sector to respond quickly to rapidly changing external events.
Rebecca is a senior business manager with practical experience of managing businesses and improving operational efficiency. She has worked in professional services, sales, business process re-engineering, HR and consulting; in the UK, America, global and pan-European positions.
Rebecca has been involved in a variety of activities to increase the participation of Women in the IT industry since the mid-1990s. She Chaired the BCS Strategic Women’s Forum and Intellect’s Women in IT Forum, and is currently Chair, Policy and Public Affairs Board for the BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, where she is a Fellow. She Chaired the Intellect Shared Services working group, and the skills group for the Egan review of Sustainable Community skills. She is a member of the Advisory Board for Warwick University Science Faculty.
