Andrew Gardner

Doctorlink Executive Chairman

Andrew became Executive Chairman of Medvivo Group in June 2017, and also fulfils this role at Doctorlink and Expert 24, two sister companies promoting the digital future of healthcare. Andrew joined Medvivo Group as Chief Executive Officer in November 2015 with the goal to build an integrated health

and care organisation which puts the patient at the centre and delivers prevention, self-management and high quality care.

Andrew’s career began in the IT sector where he supported large multi-national corporations. His work with NHS Direct gave Andrew his first insight into the NHS where he realised that changes to GP contracts would drive a new market for

Out of Hours Service providers. In 2004 he led the creation of Harmoni, a joint venture between a GP Co-op and an IT service provider, to offer Out of Hours services. Harmoni became the largest independent sector provider of Primary Care services to the NHS, treating eight million patients in the UK each year. Throughout its growth Andrew maintained an ethos of high quality with a vision to “treat patients as family”. Harmoni was sold to Care UK in 2012.

Following Harmoni, Andrew joined Appello in 2013, an organisation delivering traditional Telecare services. He led the business to deliver a more integrated wellbeing proposal to their elderly customers – covering the 4 e’s – eating, exercise, emotions and environment. He was appointed Chairman of the TSA (the Telecare Services Association) in 2014 and held this position until June 2017.
