Katie Roebuck

Head of Urgent Care Service Delivery & Transformation
North Kirklees and Wakefield CCG’s

Following University, Katie began her NHS career in 2003 at Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre Primary Care Trust.  Whilst there, she supported primary care in service development and modernisation, before progressing into the field of research governance.  By 2005, Katie had moved to Staffordshire and became the Deputy Manager for Research and Development working at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire, one of the largest teaching hospitals in the country, where she was successful in writing numerous bids to the National Health Institute for Research and being awarded millions of pounds of funding to pump prime research.  This led to Katie developing a reputation for having a passion for improving patient care and after leading the management of research governance across the West Midlands, her career progressed to her becoming Research, Business and Innovations Manager at Birmingham Childrens’ Hospital in 2008.  Here she was involved in all aspects of childrens’ research, including exciting opportunities to work with McClaren Formula 1 on building new innovative systems for Intensive Care Units and ground breaking international clinical trials.

After reaching the ceiling in her research career, Katie took the decision to head back to her Yorkshire roots and work in the field of commissioning.  After 18 months, she was promoted to the Acting Head of Service Transformation, covering a plethora of services across planned and unplanned care.  It is here that she developed a real passion for urgent care and a focus remained on improving patient experience across the Barnsley district, leading a team that won 3 awards including a HSJ and subsequently resulted in her presenting at The Kings Fund amongst many others.  During this time, Katie successfully secured a place on the Elizabeth Garett Anderson course at the NHS Leadership Academy in 2016, where she gained a leadership qualification and is finalising her Masters degree in Health and Care Leadership through the University of Birmingham.

Realising that her career to date was NHS focussed, she took the position of MCP Programme Manager at Wakefield CCG on a secondment to broaden her knowledge of multi-organisational system working, before taking on her current role as Head of Urgent Care for North Kirklees and Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Groups.

An energetic, innovative and ambitious senior manager, with 16 years’ experience in strategic and operational roles.  Katie is outcomes focussed with a passion for service excellence and enabling person centred integrated care.  Katie has a substantial experience of leading successful district-wide, multi-organisational change programmes with complex teams.

What our clients say about us

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!


In view of the recent NHS Oncology Conference organised by CONVENZIS which was sponsored by Pascoe Healthcare Ltd, CONVENZIS exhibited professionalism through credible organisation, invitation of delegates/respectable Speakers and general conduct of the entire conference. This has also shown that CONVENZIS is a great partner in business which is fundamental to ROI of partnering Companies even in the wake of the pandemic.

“We’ve worked with the Convenzis team for several years and their events are a regular occurrence for us. Not only is the content always extremely topical, but the speakers are always excellent and the support from the team ahead of and during the events is exceptional. The team are incredibly receptive to feedback and always goes above and beyond – a real pleasure to work with!”


“It has been a pleasure to work with Matt and Dan for the past few events. Everything has always run smoothly and we’ve always managed to gather a large number of interested parties due to the events they have hosted.

They are also very helpful and timely in their responses, which has made working with them very easy “
