Steve Bowyer

Executive Committee Member

Steve is currently the Head of Information Management & Technology (IM&T) at East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS), and is based in Nottingham; this role requires a broad range of technical and operational awareness in order to support the delivery of urgent and emergency care to the population of the East Midlands regions, which extends to over 6,500 square miles.  Before joining EMAS at the end of 2014, Steve worked for the Department of Health’s Ambulance Radio Programme for seven years, working in a service management role and also acting as the Ambulance Sector Accreditor for the Airwave service.

Steve’s current role encompasses the whole digital portfolio within the Trust, ranging from inbound 999 calls to control rooms, through to mobile devices used by clinicians on the road – and everything in between.  He is also the Trusts technical lead for the implementation of the Emergency Services Mobile Communications Programme, and is currently leading on a number of integration projects including the 999-999 call passing protocol and MAIT, as well as a number of NHS specific integration initiatives.

In order to support his technical knowledge and understanding of the needs of a modern emergency service, Steve also acts as a CFR where his basic clinical knowledge helps him to understand the ways in which technology can be used to improve patient outcomes, and has even been known to spend the odd shift out on the road with crews.

Steve joined the Executive Committee of BAPCO in October 2017 in order to bolster the views of the Ambulance sector, but also to bring some technical balance to the predominantly operationally biased membership.
