As an Information and Library Studies graduate, Carsten Mandt started his career in NHS Scotland in 2002 as an Information Officer with the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN), supporting the development of national evidence based guidelines. He then joined NHS Greater Glasgow in 2003 to provide a Clinical Librarian service to primary care and mental health services.
After moving into more project management focussed roles, Carsten took on the management of the Diabetes Managed Clinical Network in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde in 2010.
