Chief Executive

An engineer by training, Harry founded GP Access in 2011 after discovering some GPs who had invented a new system, and producing the evidence of its astonishing effects. With interests in research, analysis and systems thinking, he is fascinated by how things work and could work better. Sadly he is never satisfied and keeps coming up with new ideas.  He promises to stop when there are no more problems.
