The Executive Leadership Summit brings together senior NHS and industry leaders to explore the latest developments in health IT and data.

The summits are invite-only with a strong focus on networking and relationship-management. The agenda contains keynote presentations and workshops: carefully chosen to give you a rewarding and profitable day. 

Our attendees are made up of CIOs and CCIOs in the NHS, leaders from NHS England and NHS Digital and health IT innovators from industry. 

The day includes a working lunch in the dining hall of the King's Fund to give you quality-time with new contacts and your peers in health and care IT.

The event gives delegates:

  • a full day of learning, networking and expert-led workshops
  • an unrivalled forum to meet and share ideas with key influencers and leaders in healthcare/NHS IT

The Executive Leadership Summit will return to The King's Fund on Wednesday 18 October. An agenda will be available soon.

“HIMSS events have an element of prestige associated with them. ELS is known for being a great place to share thoughts and best practice amongst likeminded CIOs. The networking and dinner element was really unique from a peer to peer perspective.”
Christine Walters, Director of Informatics, St Helen’s and Knowsley NHS Trust
