Better partnerships between the NHS and the private sector: corporates, SMEs, startups

13th March 2013


Sir Ian Carruthers OBE, CEO, NHS South of England
Simon Scrivens, Managing Director, Sodexo
Nina Nashif, founder and CEO, Healthbox

Venue: Rooms 9/10, Healthcare Innovation Expo conference, held at the ExCel Centre, London.


Last year saw two significant events in the drive to improve collaboration between the NHS and other sectors; The publication of Partnerships for Healthy Outcomes and the launch of the first Healthbox Accelerator programme, yet – have these catalysed better relationships, are corporates finding it easier to engage with the NHS and are SMEs able to partner at all?  And how will Sir Ian use all the information in his innovation review?

This CHN session explored these themes with the help of our three brilliant speakers – Sir Ian Carruthers, Simon Scrivens and Nina Nashif.
