New Commercial Executive Director Appointed

6 January 2023

We are pleased to announce that we have appointed a new Commercial Executive Director, Andy McMinn. Andy will join us on Monday 3 April 2023.

Andy has 25 years commercial experience in healthcare and manufacturing, in public and private sectors, both in the UK and internationally. He joins NHS Supply Chain from the Government Commercial Function of Defra (Department for the Environment Food and Rural Affairs) where he is currently Category Management Director.

Prior to this, Andy held a national policy NHS brief for NHS England and Improvement and led on the Nationally Contracted Products Programme and the creator of NHS Spend Comparison. Andy was previously the Chief Procurement Officer for University Hospitals of Plymouth NHS Trust.

Andy brings his vast NHS experience together with developing excellence across procurement and leading and implementing transformational change.

Having worked fourteen years in NHS procurement, in national and regional roles, and also leading the team at University Hospitals Plymouth, I have seen repeatedly the huge value that procurement and supply chain management contributes to patient care. Whilst at Plymouth, NHS Supply Chain played a significant role in my team’s success. I have often imagined working at NHS Supply Chain and I’m excited to finally do so, I cannot wait to get started. I look forward to catching up with old friends, meeting new colleagues and all our suppliers in April.
