Healthcare Partnership Network 2019

Boutique-style healthcare event heads to Leeds for more industry-leading case studies, networking, targeted business meetings and keynote presentations on transformational change within the NHS.

Healthcare Partnership Network (HPN) will return this spring for its 2019 event, providing a platform for NHS leaders to come together to share their own views and experiences, as well as being a showcase for current active innovations.

Taking place on 12-13 March, HPN, which is exclusively for director and senior NHS leaders, is completely free of charge to delegates, and includes meals, refreshments and an overnight stay at Oulton Hall, Leeds.

Transformational change within the NHS is challenging to implement correctly. That, combined with the ever-changing technology landscape and the national determination to, streamlining business processes whilst seeking to maintain leading-edge patient care is difficult. Whilst some succeed in implementing a cohesive strategy, many NHS organisations are still rankling with their decision making. Unfortunately, there isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ solution to this problem.

Healthcare Partnership Network (HPN), created by Partnership Network Events (PNE) allows NHS leaders to come together to share their own views and experiences as well as listen and learn from others in the healthcare sector.

At HPN’s next engagement, delegates will experience a range of keynote presentations, leading case studies, formal and informal networking, along with targeted business meetings with suppliers. The event has a boutique style, which encourages discussions and more interactive networking on a personal level.

The 2019 event is being chaired by Jonathan Lofthouse, Director of Improvement for Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Jonathan has worked within the NHS for 26 years, the last 10 as a leading health executive.  Focusing his career predominately upon Acute and Ambulance services, Jonathan has worked as an Executive Chief Operating Officer and Deputy Chief Executive serving some of the most challenged health organisations in the UK.   Having worked both nationally and internationally, since 2016 Jonathan has been leading transformational improvements within Merseyside.

“This event is much more than just a conference. It is a very clear opportunity to not only discuss, but to collaborate with colleagues who are presented with similar challenges, to improve and innovate,” said Jonathan.

“The structure of short and pithy presentations are focused and succinct, with speakers discussing their challenges and benefits directly. The diverse mix of NHS and commercial attendees is unique. This creates an opportunity for any NHS individual to really reaffirm what they desire and expect from commercial providers.

“I’ve worked within the NHS for 26 years, and I took a number of learnings out of the inaugural event back in 2018. I connected with two commercial organisation who I had not worked with before, and I’m now doing new business with them. So, if it opened opportunities for me, then I think individuals coming into innovation and transformation within the sector will see huge benefits in attending this event.  Consequently, I am proud to be supporting this conference as its Chairman.”
