New CEO, Paul Adams aims to revolutionise patient healthcare

Paul Adams has been announced as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of LloydsPharmacy Clinical Homecare, having joined at the end of last year. This strategic move is poised to reshape LPCH’s position within the market to positively impact the landscape of clinical homecare delivery in the UK. 

As a highly experienced CEO, with a robust background in driving change and growth within the healthcare sector, amongst others, Adams is at the forefront of LloydsPharmacy Clinical Homecare’s mission to become a pioneer in bringing specialist clinical treatment therapies to patients , thereby improving patient outcomes amongst the homecare and community settings, whilst enhancing accessibility. 

Adams, who previously spearheaded transformation at DD Group (previously Dental Directory), embarks on this new journey with a vision to deepen LloydsPharmacy Clinical Homecare’s commitment to patient care. “It’s a privilege to step into a role that has such a profound impact on the way healthcare is delivered,” Adams said. “Our aim is to ensure that every patient has access to the vital healthcare they need, right in their own communities or homes, not only easing the load on the NHS but improving healthcare outcomes.”

With over two decades of experience, including impactful roles at Diageo, Smith+Nephew, and CEO positions for other Private Equity companies, Adams is well positioned to guide LloydsPharmacy Clinical Homecare through its next phase of growth, by enhancing its service offerings and clinical treatment programmes.  

LloydsPharmacy Clinical Homecare is known for its comprehensive range of healthcare services, from compounding patient specific medicines, through to medicine delivery, including specialist cancer care, clinical homecare, remote nursing, and community-based solutions, marking a significant shift towards integrated healthcare that is more easily available. 

Under Adams’ leadership, the organisation is expected to further innovate its service delivery model, ensuring healthcare is even more responsive to the needs of patients across the country. Adams is a big advocate for leveraging new digital-enabled capabilities to help simplify the entire patient journey during their treatment and create more seamless interactions with hospitals and private medical services. “The adoption of digital solutions within the healthcare environment itself presents a major challenge, but this is something we are keen to do more of, given its importance in modernising healthcare services,” Adams highlighted.

Bringing not just a wealth of knowledge and insight, but a passion for creating healthcare systems that are both efficient and empathetic, Adams who is also co-author of “The Little Black Book of Change,” looks to infuse LloydsPharmacy Clinical Homecare with a culture of innovation, operational excellence, and a relentless focus on patient care. “Healthcare must evolve to meet the changing demands of our society,” Adams stated. “I am committed to leading the organisation in a way that not only meets those demands but anticipates and addresses future healthcare needs.”

Adams is respected for bringing modern thinking to any organisation he works for. He passionately believes in the value of LloydsPharmacy Clinical Homecare’s work, which goes beyond mere profit, emphasising that “the sector itself gives people back their lives”. 

Adams added: “Demand for homecare services will only grow, and the services we offer are vital. They play a part in the country’s fabric of healthcare, and they can’t be replaced easily”. This perspective shapes his vision for the future – setting new benchmarks in patient care and treatment outcomes.
