Gary started his career in Broadgreen Hospital, Liverpool, in the Finance Department, after studying Economics at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh.  He left the NHS to join United Utilities on a graduate programme and over seventeen years did a number of roles in Finance, Operations, Capital Programmes, Regulation and as Divisional Finance Director for the Water business unit, and then the Non-Regulated business.

In 2009 he left United Utilities and returned to the NHS, to join Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust as Director of Finance.  After six years on the Board, Gary moved to NHS England, as Senior Pricing Development Manager.  In this role, he focused on developing payment methodologies to support new care models emerging from the Five Year Forward View.  This has involved developing a new payments policy, guidance and support to the sector in implementing collaborative integrated care.

This work informed the recent payment policy shift from activity-based payment to a more population-focused blended payment.   Gary and his team are currently working to develop this policy, though co-design with the sector, to support the objectives of the LTP and ICS development programme.

Convenzis Healthcare Event testimonials

What our clients say about us

It was great to join the Convenzis team again for the patient flow event. As always, the team were incredibly accommodating and happy to help. The quality of attendees is always of a high standard and relevant to the patient flow and to us also. We continue to have great discussions and footfall around our stand with no need to try and encourage people to come and see us. Really positive event for us and we look forward to working with Convenzis in the future.

My colleague and I presented at the NHS workforce conference 2023, 19 September. The support and guidance we received from the Convenzis team in the run up to our presentation slot was great, well timed and perfectly pitched. The event itself, again was expertly organised. The conference was well Chaired by Sean, who was very engaging. As an audience member as well as a panel member, I would definitely work with the Convenzis team again.


Covenzis delivered an excellent meeting like always - a hubbub of activity focused on future developments within NHS pathology laboratories

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!
