Introducing our new Chief Digital and Information Officer

We are pleased to confirm that Andy Callow has been appointed as Chief Digital and Information Officer at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH).

Andy joins us from University Hospitals of Northamptonshire NHS Group (UHN), where he is Group Chief Digital Information Officer and Interim Group Chief Executive.

As a member of the Executive Team and Trust Board at NUH, Andy will be responsible for our digital services and performance and informatics teams.

Welcoming Andy to NUH, Chief Executive Anthony May said: “Andy brings with him a wealth of experience in digital services and was the unanimous choice of the recruitment panel. In this role, Andy will help us deliver on some of the exciting developments that will provide better services for our patients and staff. We look forward to welcoming him to NUH.”

“I would like to thank Nikki Turner, Acting Director of Digital Services and Colin Monckton, Director of Performance and Information who have continued to provide invaluable support and expertise. I know that our digital services and performance and informatics teams will be stronger thanks to the collective leadership of Andy, Nikki and Colin.”

Andy joined Kettering General Hospital as the first ever Chief Digital Information Officer in April 2019 and went on to become Group Chief Digital Information Officer in December 2020. His career spans the private and public sectors, including Programme Director for the NHS App at NHS Digital and as Head of Technology Delivery for the national NHS website.

During his time at Kettering and Northampton general hospitals, Andy has:

  • Helped both hospitals to progress towards a Group Electronic Patient Record
  • Helped develop a Robotic Process Automation centre of excellence at Northampton General Hospital - a way to do repetitive tasks that save a lot of staff time
  • Supported the development of digital clinical systems that enable front line staff to use hand-held devices to record patients’ progress as it happens
  • Led and supported work to improve the digital systems at both hospitals, including moving to Cloud-based digital storage, introducing Microsoft Teams to support staff communication during the pandemic, and aligning email and information sharing systems across the two hospitals
  • He was also Executive Sponsor for the REACH (Race, Equality and Cultural Heritage) network working with staff to champion diversity in all its forms

Speaking on his appointment, Andy said: “Through the people I’ve talked to at NUH, I have a broad understanding of the challenges ahead; where things are working well and where I can make a contribution, using my experience over the past few years. I’m really excited about the impact I believe I can have over the coming years.

“One of the things that attracted me to the role is that NUH also has very close links to the universities in Nottingham and I’m really excited about the potential to do some impactful research linked into academia, supporting clinical teams using technology to improve diagnosis and prevention.”

Andy will join NUH in January 2023.
