Deputy Chief Officer
01245 514224

Richard is Assistant Director of Procurement at Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust. He is also HCSA Deputy Chief Officer.

Richard joined the NHS in 2006 following a 17-year career in the procurement sector of the electronics industry.  Since then he has worked for a Procurement Hub (East of England), the commissioning arm of a PCT, the Ambulance Service (as part of a national collaborative role) and finally an Acute Trust when he joined Mid Essex Hospital in December 2012.  This journey has exposed him to most aspects of the NHS and the knowledge gained and networks made will stand him in good stead as HCSA Deputy Chief Officer.
