Helen Bevan

 

Helen has been at the forefront of improvement and transformational change for years. She will reflect on how primary care can lead during difficult times and how powerful social movement can be in affecting health and social system change.

 

Helen has been supporting quality improvement within the National Health Service in England for nearly 30 years. She has led and facilitated many nationwide initiatives to improve care, including in cancer services, urgent and emergency care, services for people living with dementia and care in the community.

 

Helen has demonstrated a constancy of purpose and resilience to stay within the system over the years that is rare in internal change agents. She has managed to keep learning, growing and delivering change. Over time, her focus has shifted from managing big programmes of change to approaches that mobilise and build energy and commitment to change on a very large scale.

 

Helen has an ability to connect directly with thousands of frontline staff and patient leaders. She is one of the top social influencers in healthcare globally, reaching more than a million people each month through her social media connections, virtual presentations, commentaries and blogs
