Cambridge Health Network

The Cambridge Health Network (CHN) promotes collaboration between the public, private and academic sectors by connecting over 1,000 of the most prominent healthcare leaders through debate, challenge and exclusive events.

The Network’s aim is to:

  • Provide a forum for leading players in health to meet informally.
  • Create a network where ideas can be conceived, developed and nurtured.
  • Offer a confidential, closed forum in which to test new ideas and policies amongst decision-makers and influencers.
  • Create an environment where strong, productive, business connections and relationships are forged.

Since CHN started, they have organised over 50 outstanding events, attracting the highest calibre of speakers – from government policy makers, key players in the Department of Health, NHS trust and commissioning unit CEOs, global company directors to founders of SMEs – all of whom are making a big impact on the healthcare landscape.
