Celebrating a Legacy of Leadership: Paul Burstow Steps Down from TSA


As we mark a significant and important transition within governance at TSA, it is with gratitude that we celebrate the contributions of Paul Burstow, who has announced his decision to step down from his role as President and Chair of TSA CIC after 8 years of service.

During his time with TSA Paul has contributed to the growth of the organisation and its increased reach and reputation. TSA has become a strategic convenor and leader in the health and care sector, advocating for the role that technology can play in delivering better outcomes for people.

Commenting, Paul said, “I am proud of the strategic work that I have done with Alyson Scurfield and the Board, developing TSA as a strong and independent voice for technology enabled care and establishing TEC Quality as a unique UKAS accredited quality standards body. In addition, TSA governance is strong and diverse with board members appointed on merit.”

“I wish Alyson and the Board every success and will continue to advocate for the contribution that TEC can make to transforming care.”



Paul decided to step down after another highly successful TSA Conference so he can direct more of his time into his other roles.

Alyson Scurfield, TSA Chief Executive Officer, said, “Paul has been a great champion for the sector. He leaves the TSA in a strong place and we wish him well for the future.”

Paul's vision and leadership have been pivotal in shaping the strategic direction of TSA. His commitment to excellence and innovation has strengthened TSA’s role within the technology enabled care sector, bringing about substantial advancements in the quality and efficiency of services delivered across the UK.

Looking to the future, TSA is poised to embark on an exciting new chapter. With the refreshing of our governance structure from 1 July 2024, we are enhancing our focus on strategic foresight and innovative responses to sector challenges.

The introduction of the Strategic Futures Advisory Committee (SFAC) and the Sector Risk and Innovation Group (SRIG), alongside the dynamic Innovation and Challenge Panel, are set to propel TSA towards achieving even greater impact in the sector. These changes reflect our ongoing commitment to governance excellence and strategic leadership in technology enabled care.

As we bid farewell to Paul, TSA extends heartfelt thanks for his remarkable leadership and dedication. His legacy will undoubtedly influence the organisation for years to come. We wish Paul all the best in his future endeavours and look forward to his continued advocacy for technology's role in transforming care.
