Our Team

About our TPC Health team

TPC Health was previously known as The Performance Coach, and formerly part of TPC Leadership. It was founded by Dr Andrew McDowell, specifically for our work in the health and social care sectors.

We have a large faculty team that have a deep understanding of the complexity of clinical and social care settings and the changing landscape of the health and care system.  They are primarily experienced health and care professionals who understand the challenges, pressures and difficulties faced by their NHS colleagues.

They know what it is like to manage risk, make difficult decisions, endure suffering and be over-worked. They understand the courage and commitment that it takes to work in the NHS or a social care setting, and have experienced the rewards that clinical practice can bring, including being humbled by the bravery of patients and triumph of the human spirit in adversity.

They come from a range of clinical and care backgrounds including psychologists, doctors, nurses, midwives, pharmacists, counsellors, psychotherapists, social workers, community-health practitioners, social prescribers, speech-therapists, health and wellbeing coaches, patient-experience officers and consultants.

Our team has unrivalled experience in delivering applied skills development programmes in the health and social care sector, and many are leading thought leaders who are regularly invited to speak at conferences and contribute to key policy documents.

We also have a team of programme managers who are all very experienced in supporting clients through programmes, and have specialist knowledge around working with health and social care clients, as well as private sector clients.
