Our events

The Surrey Heartlands Academy curates a wide programme of events, including:

Clinical Forums

Held eight times a year, these bring clinical work streams together to work collaboratively to address issues, facilitate training and development and to be supported in setting clinical outcomes. The next Clinical Forum is in April 2019.

Connection Events

Bringing partners and stakeholders together to build long term, productive relationships.  These events also showcase both local and national best practice and innovation, and explore important topics. The most recent one was on 5th October 2018 with the theme of Quality Improvement. The next Connection is in May 2019.


Bringing together data analysts for a series of three events to help decision-makers make better informed choices. The data teams Integrate layers of data from different parts of the local health and care system to create displays of information, called data visualisations. These are then use to see how specific groups of citizens can be identified and targeted for health and care improvement. The first Hackathon was for Cardiovascular disease; the second, for Primary Care Homes, and there will be a final one on Children’s Services in 2019.

Surrey Expo

The Surrey Heartlands expo conference was held in March 2018 to bring together the best of industry and health and social care to discuss how to drive innovation through transformation work and to showcase improvement and innovation across Surrey Heartlands. More than 300 people attended the event at Sandown Park. There will be a series of follow-up events to take this work forward.
