About GIANT Health’s “Hospital Ambassador programme”

The goal of GIANT Health’s Hospital Ambassador Programme is

  1. to learn about the needs of NHS Hospital leaders and clinicians regarding how innovation and new technologies are adopted, 
  2. To research and identify all NHS Hospital leaders and clinicians who are interested in innovation and technology, and 
  3. to recruit everyone in these categories, to attend the GIANT Health Event 2024 (for free - all healthcare workers can attend GIANT for free).

Many 1000s of people work in UK hospitals  - who are interested in innovation and new technologies - don't know about The GIANT Health Event (now in our 11th year).  For example many NHS clinicians and hospital leaders are not necessarily active on LinkedIn.  However the 100s and 100s of NHS hospital staff, doctors, and nurses who attend The GIANT Health Event each year tell us they found it extremely worthwhile for their jobs and career.

Each Hospital Ambassador will be assigned to one hospital, and will be provided with all the necessary training, a list of tasks and activities, and all the ongoing guidance and support needed.
