Dr Jonathan Pearson-Stuttard, FRSPH, is Head of Health Analytics at Lane Clark & Peacock (LCP) and Chair of the Health Inequalities Programme Board at Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. As a Public Health Physician and Epidemiologist, he is also Vice Chair of the Royal Society for Public Health.


At LCP, Jonny leads a multi-disciplinary analytics team developing innovative analytics and technology approaches that cut through the noise of complex datasets and put actionable insights into the hands of decision makers across health and life sciences. Areas of work such as value-based care frameworks, quantifying co- and multi-morbidity health needs and service costs, and identifying patient groups with the most unmet need in order to prioritise resource allocation, will help to shift health systems from importers of illness to exporters of health.


Jonny was Editor-in-Chief of the Chief Medical Officer's 2018 Report 'Health 204 – Better Health Within Reach’, which recommended the development of a composite Health Index. This Index was published by the Office for National Statistics in 2020, and Jonny remains closely involved. His book, ‘Whose health is it, anyway?’ – co-authored with Dame Sally Davies – repositions health as the greatest untapped opportunity for prosperity, happiness and fairness in the 21st century. Through his work chairing Northumbria’s Health Inequalities Programme Board, Jonny is putting this approach into action.


Having trained at the University of Oxford, Jonny has been awarded multiple competitive clinical-academic research positions from the NIHR and the Wellcome Trust at Imperial College London.  His research has two main streams spanning non-communicable disease epidemiology. First, using big data and simulation modelling of health, economic and inequality outcomes to inform public health policy. Second, investigating the increasing diversification of morbidity and mortality in patients with diabetes and other chronic diseases. His research has been published in leading journals, including the Lancet, Nature and the British Medical Journal


Jonny is on several advisory boards and is regularly invited to speak on a range of topics across health.
