Interim Governing Body member
Andrew combines experience gained from both healthcare and telecoms, working at senior levels in the NHS and commercial sectors. Prior to joining NHS Kernow, Andrew was working in healthcare consultancy for independent healthcare specialists supporting the NHS across England. He has experience of working with PCTs, CCGs, acute trusts and SHAs, and delivered multi-agency change programmes across whole health and social care economies. Prior to this Andrew was a locality commissioning director in a PCT in Avon, and an associate director at a large acute foundation trust in Gloucestershire, with an evolving portfolio covering operations, strategy, clinical audit, performance management and change management.
After studying medical science and neuropharmacology at Birmingham University Medical School, Andrew entered the telecoms consultancy industry helping global blue-chip and venture-backed technology companies to grow and build their businesses, focusing on human resources and sales channel management. Reigniting his interests in medicine, Andrew left the sector to join the NHS through the Gateway to Leadership Programme. Andrew moved to Cornwall with his wife and two young daughters, and has family in Perranwell Station and Plymouth - he enjoys spending time with his family, trail running, cycling and music.
