Supporting collaboration & innovation in central government
Interactive discussion tailored for senior leaders and public officials in central government departments, business leaders, not for profits and transformational suppliers to connect, collaborate and learn around transformation and innovation
The Public Sector and Central Government Departments are more complex and wide-reaching than ever before. Against the backdrop of an economic downturn and the implications of Brexit, there is no company on earth – even the largest of multinationals – which comes close to having to co-ordinate the array of essential services and functions for millions of people that a modern government provides.
Government leaders are now recognising that navigating a world of discontinuity necessitates coming together. The massive scale and complexity of big challenges, such as the tightening economy, a post-pandemic healthcare recovery, cybercrime, and climate change, are beyond any single agency’s ability to address.
This year we shall be putting collaboration and digital equity at the heart of the agenda, between different agencies of government – a whole-of-government approach. For this reason, CGPN exists to bring together public officials, business leaders, and nonprofits are nurturing collaborative public-private ecosystems to take advantage of shared knowledge and unique strengths to drive change through digital transformation.

I believe it is incumbent upon all of us as senior health leaders to offer strategic direction, that goes without saying. But we also need to amplify curiosity, agility and a passion to improve, fostering commitment in the art of the possible.Jonathan LofthouseSite CEOKing's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
The only thing that’s going to be constant now is change. Trusts and staff need to be ready for whatever the future brings and sharing best practice between trusts, safely, is an important part of the solution.James DevineCEOMedway NHS Foundation Trust
As NHS trusts, the need to collaborate and learn from each other has never been stronger. But neither has our need to reduce unnecessary social interaction as a society.Paul BythewayChief Operating OfficerUniversity Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Foundation Trust
Events like the Healthcare Partnership Network are really important in bringing together senior leaders both from the industry and from the NHS, because you can start to see the connections that people are making. There’s a lot of synergy and energy around being able to look at a product a company has to offer and being able to relate that to what happens in the NHS.Paula HeadChief ExecutiveUniversity Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust
