Paul runs the operations side of Provide Digital, including effective implementation of the business strategy, all client liaison and sales, commercial management and marketing.
His long-term vision for the business is to achieve national recognition within the NHS and for all products and platforms to make a significant difference to the lives of patients and medical staff.

Paul studied economics and computing at university, kickstarting his career in the financial sector in the city before setting up a foreign exchange trading company with a business partner.
In 2008, he decided to return to university to study psychology and a first-class undergraduate degree and two additional first-class master’s degrees later, he made the difficult decision to step away from completing the submission of his PhD thesis, so he could take on a new challenge at Managing Director of Provide Digital.
Paul firmly believes in providing better healthcare engagement through the use of technology and improving the lives of staff and patients through the innovative solutions that Provide Digital offers.
