As Chair of Concern Group, I am delighted to announce that we have appointed Adam Crampsie as our new Chief Executive, following Brendan’s recent decision to move on from the role after 17 very successful years.
Adam will be joining the organisation early in the New Year, and the Board and I are thrilled to have attracted someone of his calibre.
We are confident that Mental Health Concern and Insight Healthcare will benefit greatly from Adam’s wide-ranging skills and experience, helping us to further develop our organisation and meet the challenges ahead.

As the current Chief Executive of Concern Group, I would like to congratulate Adam on his appointment.
I am sure you will all offer him a warm welcome when he joins us; I’m looking forward to helping him settle into the role, and supporting him in any way I can to facilitate a smooth transition.
I am thrilled to be joining Concern Group as the new Chief Executive. The organisation appealed to me from the second I read the candidate pack as part of the recruitment process. The more I learnt, the more I was impressed! It’s rare to find an organisation that is truly values-led, and even rarer to find one that makes such a positive impact to its service users whilst living and breathing its values. It is truly an honour to become a part of something so special.
I am deeply passionate about mental health – helping those with mental ill-health is something that has been an important part of my career over the past 16 years. Seeing the positive impact of mental health services on individuals and their families is one of the most rewarding aspects of any role I have had.
People need high-quality mental health services now more than ever, as a result of the financial, social, and economic impacts of recent events. Concern Group is uniquely placed to address these issues, helping those who need us most.
The role of Chief Executive with Concern Group is a fantastic opportunity for me to work with our colleagues, trustees, and valued partners to use my clinical, operational, and commercial experience to build on the fantastic foundations of the charity.
Adam is a mental health clinician by background and his experience spans the public, private, and charity sectors.
He started his career working in the NHS in mental health, before moving into private healthcare to develop and lead NHS-commissioned services across mental health trusts, acute trusts, clinical commissioning groups, and central government. During this time, he was responsible for the UK operations and development of a multi-million pound business, working in partnership with the NHS to deliver clinical services in around 450 contracts.
Following this, he moved to Nuffield Health where he was responsible for all clinical services across the group. This encompassed mental health, occupational health, GP services, physiotherapy, health screening, and workplace wellbeing. Each service ran as a standalone business, each with a leadership team, through which he delivered growth and good clinical outcomes. He was also responsible for the introduction of the company’s social return on investment outcomes across clinical services.
Latterly, he moved into a role managing a procurement organisation which spans central and local government, health and social care, and blue light organisations. During this time, he has helped reshape the model of government procurement to deliver significant savings, whilst securing wider social, economic, and environmental benefits (social value). This has delivered over £28 million of social value in the past 12 months, positively impacting local communities across the UK.
