Tal Golesworthy was named one of the 50 most innovative people in healthcare by Health Service Journal.

HSJ invited readers to name those they thought the judges should consider then a panel of expert judges were asked review the long list and add suggestions of their own. The judges worked around some broad criteria: significance, or how big the problem solved has been; impact, or what difference the innovation has made and to what extent it has worked to change things; and support, or how the innovation has fostered and led to other innovation and how it has given inspiration to others.

Alastair McLellan, Editor of HSJ said “Our list is diverse, encompassing everything from top-flight clinicians at the leading edge of their research fields through to frontline staff, patients, managers and simply free-thinking spirits, from within and outside the NHS, who have brought their imagination and creativity to bear. It shows how, for all the NHS can be at times big, unwieldy and bureaucratic, it should be applauded for still allowing space for innovation and ‘blue sky’ thinking.” Read more about the list on the HSJ website.
