Vanguard Healthcare Solutions has announced the appointment of Lindsay Dransfield as group commercial director.

Vanguard, a supplier of flexible clinical capacity solutions, operates a fleet of mobile operating theatres, clinics, endoscopy facilities, and wards, providing additional or replacement capacity to hospitals worldwide.

The business has been diversifying its customer base and range of solutions, and Dransfield joins at a time it is poised to increase its market share in a number of key territories.

Dransfield joins from Stericycle, where she has been commercial director for the last two years.

She has a wealth of experience in designing and providing healthcare solutions, having previously held senior roles at Servelec, Civica UK, and Northgate Information Systems.

Commenting on the appointment, David Cole, Vanguard Healthcare Solutions’ chief executive, said: “Lindsay joins at a critical time as the business stands to gain an increasing profile in key target territories; as we develop new solutions for key markets; and as the NHS faces significant capacity constraints as it refocuses on reducing waiting lists for elective procedures. Her style and experience is a great fit.”

Dransfield added: “Vanguard has a unique set of experience and solutions that will play a key role in capacity management both at home and abroad.

“I am excited to be joining the business and can’t wait to meet our customers and make a real difference to their ability to drive service delivery.”
