Events, Exhibitions

Working within the Communications team at AHSN NENC Sarah’s focus is on event management. Sarah manages the whole process from the planning stage, right through to running the actual day itself and ensures our events run smoothly and professionally. Sarah also manages the Bright Ideas in Health Awards, a competition to celebrate the achievements of individuals and teams working within the NHS, industry and academia, who believe that the services provided to patients can be improved, either through a technical innovation or through better service delivery. The Awards are now celebrating their fifteenth year and are the largest healthcare event in the North East of England.

Sarah joined the AHSN NENC after a long career at RTC North Ltd, a technology transfer company in Sunderland, where she held numerous roles including Communications and Events Manager of NHS Innovations North, a service supporting NHS Trusts with internal innovation and the development of innovative healthcare products.
