About this Event

Please submit any questions that you would like to be put to the speakers by Thursday 26th November via email to:

The relationship between our Universities and NHS organisations is one of the oldest, strongest and most valuable local partnerships we have. Across every part of the UK, these institutions have worked closely over many years to help make their populations both better and better off – developing a world-class clinical workforce, translating medical innovations into practice and understanding how to help us live longer, healthier lives.

The emerging focus on rebalancing the economy is causing anchor institutions such as universities and NHS organisations to explore their wider impact in the local economy and to better understand the role and responsibilities they have to support their communities. With universities and the NHS playing a leading role in the clinical, economic and social response to COVID-19 now is the time to revisit this relationship and to ask whether new forms of collaboration and values based on place-based leadership are needed.

This joint Civic University Network and NHS Confederation webinar will hear from leaders across the university and NHS landscape involved in pushing the boundaries of traditional institutional leadership. This event will be used to start a conversation, supporting the identification of the key themes to take forward and areas for collaborations to drive this agenda forward.
