Zoe Horwich works at Kaleidoscope.
Zoe has worked across the healthcare sector for more than 10 years, dipping her toes into the private sector, membership organisations, consultancy and political parties (well, party). She started off on this track because of a desire to understand how organisations and services ‘work’ (or don’t work), and hopefully help them function better.
An interest in healthcare was thrust upon her as an intern in Parliament, but a deeply dysfunctional NHS and considerable politicking around health and social care got her hooked.
Zoe’s work prior to joining Kaleidoscope was about influencing the health service to make good decisions. She has been frustrated by watching people do the same thing over and over and learning nothing, and decided to join Kaleidoscope to try something different.
She likes bringing people together for a common aim, which is convenient given Kaleidoscope’s mission. She enjoys how much there always is to learn about the world of health and care, and how many smart and passionate people she has been lucky to meet.
When not working, Zoe likes to sleep. It rarely seems to happen though because of two small people who share her home in west London.
