42 Years Working in the NHS

Sadly, we have had to say goodbye to Andrew Stilliard, Category Manager, who has retired from the NHS after 42 years working within Procurement, with 17 of those years being in the PPSA.

Many patients may not know the contribution Andrew made to their care from the multi-million pound savings to the patient benefits realised from successful contracting for areas such as Stoma, Continence, Enteral Feeds and Negative Pressure wound therapy.  His passion to deliver the most cost effective service and contracts to benefit the wider NHS enabled him to work closely with many staff across the Trusts, all of whom will miss him greatly.

Andrew retired on the 20th July 2017 with plans for his retirement to include spending more time with his grandchildren, sourcing a quality motorhome that meets his specification for touring, gardening and social action work in Torbay. Andrew’s Line Manager, Davina Mortimer, Senior Category Manager said: “Andrew has worked as part of the NHS through times of great change and in recent years has been a very important, well liked part of the PPSA team.  We will miss his vast knowledge and his good nature.  We thank him for all his dedication to the NHS and we wish him a well deserved and happy retirement”.
