Cathy Waldron

Programme Administrator

Cathy is the new Programme Administrator for the Multilink project at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. Multilink is a UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded programme administered through LSTM with five partner organisations. It will be conducted in Malawi and Tanzania and seeks to design and test a system that identifies patients suffering from multiple chronic diseases (multimorbidity) when they seek emergency care in sub-Saharan African hospitals. The overall aim is to improve early disease treatment, ensure better follow up (prevent complications, disability and hospital readmission), thus improving health related quality of life and survival rates.

Cathy has had a varied career working in sales and administrative roles in the private sector, Local Authorities, Universities and Colleges. As a mature student Cathy undertook a Business Studies Management degree whilst working part time.

Prior to undertaking this role in LSTM Cathy has worked for over 4 years in LSTM as a Departmental Secretary in the Department of Tropical Disease Biology supporting a team of up to 100 staff and students.
