Its mission is to connect the NHS, private healthcare providers, national bodies, partners and suppliers through thought-provoking and educational content and a trade-show platform focused on the key opportunities and challenges in healthcare today.
This is because the healthcare team at GovNet Exhibitions, the organisers of the show, understand the need for a sustainable and forward-thinking business model for both the NHS and private healthcare, which continues the UK’s provision of world leading healthcare services that ensure of the best possible patient outcomes.
The show covers the unprecedented challenges facing the NHS and healthcare systems in the UK, but also demonstrates its resilience and appetite for innovation and opportunity.

Born out the Healthcare Efficiency through Technology show (launched in 2011) and Commissioning in Healthcare (launched in 2013) the show brings a rich legacy of being at the forefront of the industry.
This year it will be growing to two days and to reflect its growth plans, moving to its new home of ExCeL London.
Progressiveness, Innovation and Diversity
Event Director and Head of Healthcare at GovNet Communications, Alexander Rushton, explains:
“Through the UK Health Show, we want to celebrate the leaders and the progressiveness, innovation and diversity from across the UK healthcare sector by focusing on four key opportunities and challenges facing the health sector today.
“These are digital technology, commissioning, procurement and cyber security.
“Having started my career in a Trust, before moving to the NHS Confederation and also spending a year working with the World Health Organization, I’ve seen first-hand the challenges facing the healthcare industry not only in the NHS and UK systems, but also the global systems.
“However, with that comes great opportunity and that is what we promote with the UK Health Show – the opportunity for the whole of the NHS, industry and the wider sector to meet, discuss, connect and find solutions to take advantage of the opportunities for success and overcome the challenges faced today.
“This gives our exhibitors, sponsors and all attendees’ access to the full spectrum of buyers, specifiers, decision makers, influencers and stakeholders in the healthcare sector.”
