New chairman for Healthcode

Romana Abdin

Independent healthcare’s online services specialist Healthcode has appointed the former chief executive of Simplyhealth Group, Romana Abdin, to chair its board and oversee a new chapter of planned innovation. 

The company said she will work alongside managing director Peter Connor to enhance its products and services to independent practitioners, hospitals and insurers.

Former barrister Ms Abdin called it an exciting time to be chairing Healthcode as it took a leap forward with its online products, services and engagement with stakeholders.

She said: ‘I’ve been impressed by Healthcode’s spirit of innovation, its focus on finding solutions which address the real-world challenges faced by the industry – such as The Private Practice Register –and its determination and ambition to be a force for technological progress.’

Ms Abdin takes over from Dr Doug Wright, who was at the helm for just over five years, alongside his role as Aviva UK Health medical director.
