HSCIC Appoints New Chief Executive

January 30, 2014: The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) has appointed Andy Williams as its new Chief Executive.

Andy has extensive experience in overseeing large transformational technology projects in the UK and around the world having led teams in companies such as IBM, Alcatel-Lucent and CSC during the last three decades.

He has worked across a variety of industry sectors, usually being involved in programme governance, introducing complex new technology and managing change. He has an international reputation and the companies he has worked with include many well-known names both in the UK and abroad.

Andy Williams said:

"I am delighted to be able to bring my experience and expertise to a role as important as this. The HSCIC, since its creation in April last year, has made good progress in establishing itself as a highly influential source of information and analysis, as well as a provider of systems and services on which the NHS depends. No role in technology is more important than supporting the delivery of better patient care. I look forward to taking up my post in April and building on this early success."

Kingsley Manning, Chair of the HSCIC, said:

"Andy's track record speaks for itself. His integrity and analytic skills, coupled with his extensive contacts across the informatics industry, will give HSCIC a further boost as it builds its reputation for information services."
