David Lighterness

Industry Advisor

As a technology generalist, David has worked in both mainframe and client/server environments, which has enabled him to take the best from both worlds in terms of the robust rigidity in the mainframe environment and the informality of the client/server environment. This applies to both software and system processes including the non-IT or technical aspects of a system.

While working for the Department of Health, David undertook multiple and diverse roles which offered him a solid base from which to learn the workings of healthcare in England. For example, the KPI’s currently in the Standard National Contract were specified and designed by David and the dataflows from hospitals to several reporting agencies, such as the HPA and National Joint Registry exist because David created the csv specifications and upload protocols to replace the manual reporting processes.

His time with the Data Standards Board gave him in-depth knowledge and understanding of the NHS Data Dictionary and the use of nomenclature within both the NHS and non-NHS healthcare providers.

David’s experience at the Department of Health enabled him to project manage the 111 rollout for South East England, as well as the Hospital-at-Home project for West Berkshire, and several other significant NHS projects. His thorough understanding of the Payments by Results mechanism meant that he anticipated and expressed the failure of the Hospital-at-Home project several months before NHS England considered it unsustainable.

David is a data and systems expert with real-world application. He has managed projects across primary and secondary healthcare, banking, insurance, cybersecurity and big pharma, and has a solid understanding of advanced analytics, and the systems and processes that support businesses.

He believes the success of M&A lies in targeting businesses which meet a clear clinical strategic plan.

At Astonbrook Care Limited, Simon was appointed as Chairman and then CEO by Octopus Investments to deliver a turnaround and exit strategy.

Tim understands the pressures and expectations that accompany executive roles and has mentored and coached numerous boards. At a private company in Romania, Tim was appointed interim CEO to restructure and support the management team, with a specific focus on the introduction of internationally accepted quality standards.
