Welcome to A Healthy Perspective, the podcast series from Saxton Bampfylde that offers insights and perspectives from senior healthcare leaders from across the sector.
In this month’s episode we were delighted to speak with David Hare MBE. David has been CEO of the Independent Healthcare Providers Network (IHPN) since 2014. During this time, membership has grown from 26 to almost 100 members and the work of IHPN has expanded significantly to include critical work to improve standards and patient safety in the sector. This can be seen through his work in bringing together independent healthcare providers to implement the Medical Practitioners Assurance Framework – used by the Care Quality Commission in assessing how well-led an independent service is, and now a requirement for all independent providers under the NHS’ 2022/23 Standard Contract. David was awarded an MBE in the 2023 New Year’s Honours List for services to healthcare.
