Andrew Strevens

Chief Executive Officer

Andrew is Chief Executive Officer, and joined the Trust in August 2015.

Andrew’s formative years were in Southampton, being educated in local state schools. He has worked within the health service since 2009 and brings a whole system view, having worked in senior positions for providers (Hampshire Community Health Care and Southern) and as a commissioner (NHS England South Region). He also has a commercial background, having worked for KPMG and B&Q Plc. Andrew is a passionate believer in delivering value by treating patients as individuals and in trusting the judgement of frontline staff.

Andrew is a values-based leader who believes deeply in developing a culture where people can thrive and be at their best. He previously stepped into the role of Acting Chief Executive from October 2020 to March 2021 whilst the Trust's Chief Executive was seconded to the national COVID-19 vaccination programme. During this time, Andrew led the organisation's response to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic which included the creation and operation of four COVID-19 mass vaccination sites across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. 

Andrew has a real passion for working in partnership with health, social care and the voluntary sector to deliver joined up, patient-centred care for the benefit of local people.
