This is a chance to hear from two outstanding leaders at the front line of leading the healthcare system in England.
Dealing with the acute pressures of funding and performance on a daily basis they will share their experiences and insights on how to make the most of the money available, develop people, and look after yourself . For both of them, excellence today goes hand-in-hand with securing the future by developing the next generation.
Sarah-Jane Marsh is CEO of Birmingham Women’s and Children’s hospitals. Integrating two hospitals in February 2017 to create Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust – the first of its kind in Europe, Sarah-Jane also led the development of an innovative new mental health partnership for 0-25 year olds in the city – Forward Thinking Birmingham – another UK first. Her passions are exceeding the expectations of patients and families and making Birmingham Women’s and Children’s the very best place to work and be cared for.
Professor Nick Harding is Chair of the NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group. Nick has unusual experience both as a commissioner and provider of healthcare. As a commissioner, he created an award-winning CCG recognised for its innovative culture, approach to engagement and its consistent high performance. As a provider, he was a founding GP Partner of the Modality Partnership which has seen steady growth in the last 10 years. It is now a multi-site primary care provider organisation with over 46 health centres and serving over 300,000 patients.
Nick has a real passion for creating a sustainable future for healthcare. He secured funding and delivered a leadership programme for over 100 West Midlands GPs to support their emergence as future leaders and inspire them to achieve change, which is now being rolled out nationally. In addition to this, he helped drive forward the new Aston Medical School to support children in deprived inner city areas, nurturing future medical talent for Birmingham that will be representative of their communities. He is also involved in health education projects in Malawi and social projects in inner city Birmingham.
