NHS Digital Role Director Standards Transformation
Andrew graduated with a degree in Design in 1981 and in 1983 set up a Cambridge based design agency, working with a range of brands in the Pharma, Telco and finance sectors - mainly in the areas if educational marketing, training systems and information design. In 1989, a successful relationship with Unipalm PIPEX (later to become UUNET and MCI WorldCom) paved the way for Andrew to develop an internet services capability that led to many high profile web and software system contracts including for the Bank of England, Royal Society, Post Office, EMI, MoD and the Royal Navy. After 20 years of successful trading the business was acquired in 2003 by Saatchi and Saatchi where Andrew’s role as Director of Interactive involved leading and shaping the Agency online and emerging mobile channel business for national, EMEA and Global accounts.
Seeking a change, in 2006 Andrew secured a role as Head of New Media Operations at NHS Digital before in 2008 becoming CTO, then CIO of NICE. Andrew was initially recruited to develop NHS Evidence within a 6 month time frame. Following a successful launch of NHS Evidence as a national search technology platform, Andrew continued to transform NICE digital capability, operations and services including digital only guidance publishing, NICE Pathways, NICE BNF and Guidance mobile apps. In 2014 Andrew left NICE to seek opportunities as an independent IM&T consultant and has worked with the DH developing national strategy for social care informatics, a digital Review for CQC and is currently working as Director of Standards Transformation for NHS DIgital.
