Andrew has worked within NHS Scotland since 2016. Starting from an administrative position to project management roles within the Primary Care and Mental Health teams in Healthcare Improvement Scotland, Andrew was delighted to join the NSS National Services Division in 2019 to manage the National Police Care Network and the Scottish Veterans Care Network.
Graduating from the University of Aberdeen in 2012, Andrew has accumulated skills from working in a variety of sectors prior to his time in the NHS; such as festival and events management, marketing, tourism and hospitality.
One of Andrew’s main achievements to date was project managing the first iteration of the Practice Administrative Staff Collaborative (PASC), to support the development of GP practice administrative teams and improve processes. By the end of the project, the volume of documentation sent to GPs that reported data had reduced by 44% on average, equating to approximately one hour of GP time per day.
Andrew is passionate about the value of collaboration and finding national solutions to prevalent issues within the NHS and beyond where possible, and is excited to be part of the Police Care and Veterans Care Networks, where these ideals are fundamental to their success.
Andrew is also an Active Travel Champion at his place of work, supporting people in the workplace to be more active through walking or cycling as part of their everyday journeys.
Outside the office, Andrew is often found in range of his beloved cups of coffee, training for the occasional triathlon or on the football field.
