Bid Leadership, Bid Writing, Business Strategy

Andy is a senior healthcare sector bid management and business development professional, in all delivering in excess of £160m of bid-wins over a 30 year career history. Andy specialises in the leadership and authoring of complex bids for NHS services for both private and public sector clients, and driving and supporting diverse bid-teams. Andy works closely with Subject Matter Experts to capture and optimise IP and create differentiated bid-winning content, and is also skilled at analysing market opportunities and supporting clients in making informed bid / no-bid decisions.

Andy offers a deep understanding of public sector tender processes and frameworks, and how to manage and support bid processes that maximise the potential for success. In 2000 Andy was instrumental in winning the NHS Direct National IT Managed Service contract and driving the delivery of the first national-scale implementation of a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution within the NHS. Subsequently, over an eight-year period Andy played an intrinsic role in growing the former GP Co-op Harmoni to become the largest provider of NHS urgent care services in the country.
