This event has now taken place - this write up gives an overview of the discussions, questions and ideas that came out of the day.


Join our new event series with Kaleidoscope Health and Care bringing people together from across healthcare – in policy, delivery, strategy and research – to learn from successful change in the NHS. Changing Healthcare will use four case studies of successful, large scale change in the NHS as themes to underpin four events that will focus on drawing out the learning for those working in, or thinking about, improvement and system change within the NHS.

To kick us off, our first case study of successful change will be the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE). In this event we will hear a range of perspectives as we consider factors like organisational design, the use of evidence and breadth of engagement to focus learning for those working in the system now.


  • Gill Leng, Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Health and Social Care, NICE
  • David Haslam, Chair, NICE (2013-2019) and Part of Kaleidoscope Health and Care
  • James Raftery, Professor of Health Technology Assessment at the University of Southampton (formerly chair of the NIHR Evaluation Trials and Studies Cooodinating Centre)
  • Nicholas Timmins, Senior Fellow at the Institute for Government and the King's Fund

This free event is open to all, but will be of particular interest to people working in service change, delivery, policy and research.

The day will start at 10.00 and close at 16.00, with lunch provided.
