Kieran Bamber

Business Development Manager

From starting a career in healthcare IT recruitment and assisting numerous Trusts with the delivery of digital health systems and EPRs, such as Lorenzo, Kieran specialises in helping NHS organisations find ways to solve the complex challenges that they face.

Kieran acts as an advocate for our clients and helps them identify, specify and then create solutions that don’t simply fix problems, but solves them.

Kieran is one of the founding team members for Populo and in the five years he has worked in resourcing and consultancy, he has developed an in-depth understanding of digital health and the markets we operate in and sharing our experiences with different organisations.


Populo Consulting supported us extensively throughout our EPR Optimisation Programme. Their model fits well within the wider programme management and the fixed price delivery linked to an agreed set of outcomes helped keep the programme within budget. Overall, I was impressed with the service received and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to other NHS organisations.
