Dr Helen Bevan is acknowledged globally for her expertise and energy for large-scale change in health and care. During her 25 years as a change leader in the English National Health Service, Helen has been at the forefront of many NHS improvement initiatives that have made a difference for thousands of patients and for the staff who care for them.
Helen currently leads the Horizons team, which is a source of ideas and knowledge to enable the spread of improvements at scale. The team uses a variety of different tools and approaches including social movement thinking, community organising, improvement science, accelerated design and digital connectivity. It champions the role of emerging leaders, students and trainees at the forefront of radical change.
Currently part of NHS England, the Horizons team is seeking to become the first team to spin out of a national NHS body and reinvent itself as a staff-led mutual. The team believes that the mutual sector will be the venue of some the most radical and impactful change practice for social good in coming years.
