Since March 2020, to meet the changing needs of healthcare and innovators alike, our team at TheHill quickly grew from a core group of three to ten plus specialist associates, switching all of our programmes, events and recruitment online.
A cautious estimate is that we have spent over 700 hours, on a range of different online platforms; so where else to meet for the team virtual Christmas party, as Director Megan Morys-Carter explains: “Half of the team have never actually met each other in person. Despite that we have a great team spirit and have delivered hundreds of hours of events online this year. It’s wonderful to work with such a fantastic team. Our online Christmas do was great fun and Secret Santa even managed to deliver parcels internationally!”Online awards, creative competitions, quizzes, and a visit from virtual Santa kept our team entertained; with the highlight a beautiful bespoke carol from Bicester theatrical group StAges.
If you’re interested in innovation in health and care, join us for our next online networking event in February 2021. Our 2021 Market Access Accelerator (MAA) programme launches for applications in January, and is all about technologies and ideas relevant to the NHS. As TheHill is embedded within the system, we are able to offer an extensive network and insights into the inner workings of the NHS, to help participants to progress.
Based at The John Radcliffe Hospital, TheHill is Oxfordshire’s health and care digital transformation catalyst. Our team runs innovation cluster, incubator, accelerator and digital education programmes in Oxfordshire and across the Thames Valley with NHS Trusts, universities, digital developers, innovators and investors.
