Information training for the NHS

The decision-makers are on the left. The grey pyramid represents the managers and clinicians in the NHS who have to decide how many theatre sessions we need to meet waiting times targets, how many beds we need to cope with emergency inpatient workload, how many occupational therapists we need to enable discharge planning to work. The decision-makers need data to inform their decisions.

The data is on the right. The black box contains the data. It also represents the people who control and disseminate the data.

Ideally, there should be a rich, fruitful, problem-solving dialogue going on between the grey pyramid and the black box. But frequently there isn't.


Kurtosis is a UK-based information training consultancy. We design and deliver courses and workshops that help the health service make sense of data.

We provide three types of information training: how to how to interpret data, how to analyse data and how to present data. Our training is mainly delivered through one-day courses that are informal, practical and packed with real-life NHS examples.

There are courses for managers. There are courses for analysts. And there are courses for clinicians. We deliver most of our training in-house, on clients' own premises, but we also schedule open courses at city centre locations from time to time.

Kurtosis is passionate about getting information into the mainstream. The health service needs high quality information analysis that is aligned with its operational and strategic challenges. And it needs the results of that analysis to be presented professionally and interpreted wisely.

Our training solutions are centred around these values.
