Servelec’s Health & Social Care business appoints Alan Howarth as strategic advisor

Servelec, the UK-based technology group, is pleased to announce the appointment of Alan Howarth as Senior Advisor to the Board of Servelec Health & Social Care, a division of Servelec Group PLC.

Alan has extensive senior executive experience in the Health & Social Care sectors gained with a range of national and international organisations from both the public and private sectors.
