A day as a systems analyst

You're based at your local NHS hospital, checking and improving shared computer systems all over the hospital. You start work at 9am, assessing how computers are used in the accident and emergency department.

You decide a new computer program is needed for staff to get the best use of the IT system, and ask an IT programmer to design a test model.

Next, you take a look at the computer database used to store patient records. Staff have had trouble accessing it recently, and you test various logical theories to see what could be the problem. You soon work out some areas of the hospital aren't correctly accessing the network, and order a routine wire repair.

You love using your skills to help so many people, and finding logical solutions to problems.
