Professional experience and particular interests:
Andre was born and raised in the North East of England. After finishing his pharmacy degree at Sunderland University in 1999 he started his professional career as a Community Pharmacist for the family business. He went on to manage 10 pharmacies by the age of 26.
After the sale of the family business in 2006 Andre started work for Co-Operative Pharmacy Group and became an Area Manager for 29 stores in 2010. In 2011 he started worked for Celesio building pharmacy services for NHS Acute and Mental Health Trusts, Prisons and private healthcare companies.
In 2014/15 he completed a full-time MBA at Durham University where he studied: business finance, economics, strategy, marketing, management consultancy and project management. Andre launched his own consultancy in September 2015 and has been commissioned to lead projects at PSNC (Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee), NHS England (London), Pharmacy Voice (national pharmacy representative organisation) and for the Academic Health Sciences Network (a part of NHS England).
Finally, Andre, along with Mike Maguire, is the designer, developer and project manager of the award winning Digital Minor Illness Referral Service (DMIRS), a service that he believes will fundamentally change what pharmacy does and how pharmacy is perceived in the future.
Andre is a Pharmacist Advisor at Andre Yeung Ltd, project manager for DMIRS, a Senior Specialist Advisor for Newcastle City Council Public Health Department and Chair of the NHS England Local Professional Network for Cumbria and the North East.
