The Cambridge Health Network: a leaders’ network

The Cambridge Health Network is an exclusive membership organisation comprised of over 600 of the most senior leaders in healthcare

The network’s purpose is to promote collaboration between the public, private and academic sectors by connecting the most prominent healthcare leaders through debate, challenge and exclusive events. It offers an opportunity for leading players across the healthcare industry to meet informally.

Our events are a mix of learning, discussion and networking, giving members an environment where strong, productive, business connections and relationships can be forged.  We want to create a confidential, closed forum to share current thinking, test new ideas and policies amongst decision-makers and influencers.

 Speakers at recent events include:

  • Jeremy Hunt – Secretary of State for Health,
  • Dido Harding – Chair of NHS Improvement,
  • Professor Tim Briggs – National Director for Clinical Qualityand Efficiency for the NHS,
  • Dr Simon Eccles – Chief Clinical Information Officer,
  • Professor Sir Bruce Keough, Michael MacDonnell – National Directorfor Transforming Health Systems,
  • Matthew Swindells – Deputy Chief Executive NHS England.
Pam Garside and Penny Dash, co-chairs of CHN

The annual programme culminates in the biggest event in the December diary. The Cambridge Health Network ‘Not the Healthcare Awards’ where glamour and healthcare meet to celebrate the year that was. Find out more.

It was a great event and really well organised – I know how incredibly difficult these evenings are to pull off and the amount of work it involves but it really was excellent
