Career Highlights

  • Andrew has successfully led the overall contract management on a number of complex service delivery models. This has included managing client expectation and ensuring effective and timely delivery of our services.
  • Lead the audit service to a national police service during a period of significant change and development. We worked closely with the Authority and the Force senior management and were involved in a number of major project reviews which assisted significantly with increasing accountability and efficiency. We were instrumental in enabling the NAO to be able to sign-off the statutory accounts.
  • Lead a major investigation into patient transport services across two counties. The work involved 7 NHS CCGs and 5 NHS Provider Trusts. We had to work to very tight deadlines set by the Department for Health. All deadlines and key milestones were successfully met and our work assisted in the successful re-procurement of the transport service. We were commended by the CCGs, the House of Commons and the NAO for our incisive grasp of a very complex situation.
