Between 1993 and 2002 he was the Executive Director of Public Affairs at the Independent Healthcare Association in London. In this role, he was widely credited as being the driving force behind the ‘2000 NHS / Independent Sector Concordat’ which was described by the Financial Times as the most “historic deal in 50 years of British healthcare”.

In 1991, Tim worked in Bratislava where he was the Head of the Slovak Prime Minister’s Policy Unit. At the time, he was the most senior British adviser in the former communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe.

In the late 1980s he was the Assistant Director of the Foundation for Defence Studies where he worked alongside the former Chief of the Defence Staff, Field Marshall, the Lord, Sir Edwin Bramall KG, GCB OBE MC JP DL.
