It is often the case that in the most difficult conditions the best ideas are born and the greatest creativity flourishes. This is certainly true in the NHS.


An unprecedented black cloud is lingering over the health service in the shape of the predicted £30bn financial black hole which it faces by 2020.

It is only through innovation in areas including methods of patient care, technology, structural reform, patient engagement and organisational change that the NHS can adapt to the challenges it faces.

As HSJ’s team of expert judges compiled our list of 50 top innovators, the level of innovation and creativity in the health service shone through.
We sought to identify people who have taken innovative approaches that make a tangible difference to patients, healthcare colleagues, the healthcare system or wider society.

We hope our list represents
innovators from a cross section of areas of the NHS, representing different sectors and different cultures
