The company’s founding Directors Diane Whittingham, Anita Marsland and Alan Yates, are all ex-chief executives within the health and local government sectors. Sir Andrew Cash (also a Director) currently still a practicing CEO provides valuable guidance, advice and support to the business. Together with our Associates (also ex NHS CEOs/Directors/Senior Managers) we offer a breadth of skills and experience across acute, community and mental health services, social care, and health and local government commissioning. Collectively we offer experience of working at Departmental, system and organisational level. We are different in that we offer not only experience, understanding and skill but critically we know how to implement successfully and make things work.
We pride ourselves in understanding that our clients operate in a complex- adaptive, non-linear world and this underpins our nurturing approach which is intended to enable our clients to be independent from us rather than dependent on us, which again sets us apart from our competitors.
UHS also benefits from a strategic alliance with Ernst and Young and enjoys access to an extensive network of specialist advice and support that we can access as and when required.
