About Chris:

Chris leads the Rethink Healthcare business. With 9 years of experience in the healthcare space, he is a highly knowledgeable recruitment director and outcomes-based project resource expert that works closely with clients on strategic and business-critical programmes.

His understanding of the challenges NHS organisations and healthcare services face is invaluable to clients. He listens, understands client needs and takes an empathetic approach to designing the most fitting solution – ensuring detailed attention is paid to best quality, commercial viability and governance.

Chris can help you with:

  • Strategic support with workforce planning and project resource mapping
  • Key stakeholder relationship management
  • Service delivery reviews and cost improvement initiatives
  • Recruitment of interim and permanent staff
  • Public sector frameworks
  • Governance and legislative guidance
  • Market intelligence and industry insights

Chris heads the Rethink Healthcare team, ensuring they are fully supported and guided through every project they work on. He works with each individual team member to ensure they realise their own potential and have all the tools and support needed to achieve their goals.

He also promotes a lot of CSR activities and has been instrumental in arranging events to raise money for Men’s Health, NSPCC and is this year leading fundraising for the wider group in aid of Bristol Children’s Hospital.


“Because this organisation had an established business relationship with Rethink Healthcare, I worked with Chris during the assignment on both the ongoing management of current interim personnel and the recruitment to a number of additional interim roles. He understands healthcare and knows the healthcare market including many key stakeholders and has a value-driven approach to fulfilling his contracts. He is an excellent communicator, is readily available and delivers what he promises, seeming to take a genuine pleasure in making a good match and contributing to the delivery of wider organisational objectives.

In summary, I find Chris to be honest, straightforward and easy to do business with. He is professional and delivers what he says he will in a positive, timely, and personally engaging way. I look forward to an ongoing relationship with Chris and Rethink Healthcare.”
