New, national role for board member Richard Stubbs
Richard Stubbs, CEO of Health Innovation Yorkshire & Humber, has been appointed as Chair of the national Health Innovation Network.
This appointment coincides with the beginning of a new five-year licence agreement for the Health Innovation Network and its 15 regional bodies across England (formerly known as AHSNs) working collaboratively, both nationally and locally, to deliver spread and adoption of innovative technologies and transformational improvements for the benefit of patients, citizens and the NHS.
In his new role, Richard will have oversight of the national Health Innovation Network which will provide him with an ideal platform to represent and act on behalf of Yorkshire and the Humber at the highest levels of government and the NHS.
Leeds Academic Health Partnership Director Kate Lodge said: “Congratulations to Richard from all of us. His national appointment is great news as it provides an even stronger platform for sharing his extensive insights, expertise and influence and for championing our Partnership, our city and our region.”
