Andy Lunt

Managing director, Secondary Care

I’m responsible for the management and development of our secondary care services across the UK. Growth, operational delivery and profitability has to be underpinned by a robust clinical model and governance framework which puts the patient at the centre of our business.

I was determined to ‘return to my roots’ and manage a private hospital business. Before all of this though, I initially worked in retail and hospitality as a multi-site operational manager. I moved into healthcare in 2002 and worked in private hospitals for 8 years. Subsequently I worked in instrument decontamination and diagnostic sectors, before spending 12 months working in social care to broaden my understanding and experience of the wider healthcare sector. Having fulfilled a wide range of management roles in healthcare, I have a breadth of experience to draw upon in fulfilling this role.

I’m passionate about delivering great care and service to patients. I want to work in roles where I am able to make a difference in how care is delivered.

I wanted to work for Care UK because I have always admired their position as a partner and outsourced service provider to the NHS. The close links and relationship with the NHS were instrumental in attracting me to join Care UK.

I can often to be found, come rain or shine, trying to fire a twig at a target somewhere in the distance, which means I’m a big fan of archery! I also enjoy reading (usually fantasy or crime novels), cycling and badminton.
