Expert Adviser

Andrew is Co-Founder and Managing Director of Mutual Ventures, a specialist public services consultancy working with central government, councils and the NHS to make public services better, bolder and more sustainable. He is passionate about innovation and radical reform in public services with a heavy emphasis on actually getting things implemented.

Andrew also hosts the podcast for public service leaders, is a Non-Executive on the Board of PossAbilities CIC (an adult social care organisations based in Greater Manchester) and is a member of the DCMS College of Experts.

“The NHS is precious to us all – but we aren’t protecting it by tinkering around the edges and letting it drift on in the same direction. A big shift towards prevention is needed, as is a shift away from the centre towards local communities. I’m looking froward to supporting Reform as they strive to address the challenges clearly set out in the Reimagining Health framing paper.”
