Now in its ninth year, the HealthInvestor Power 50 is one of the most established nights in the health and social care calendar. For the best part of a decade, this evening has brought together the leading individuals in the sector for an evening of celebration, contention and vigorous debate over the shortlist…

Over time, however, it has become clear that in an innovative and evolving market, it is becoming ever harder to compare the merits of individuals with such varied skillsets and roles – which is why this year there will be a number of significant changes to the event.

In 2017, the HealthInvestor Power 50 will celebrate the most effective and inspiring leaders across six key aspects of independent healthcare. The sector’s most influential leaders will be split into their areas of expertise as per the categories listed here and then, before the night itself, they will be ranked via blind ballot by the other members of the HealthInvestor Power 50.

By introducing peer recognition into the Power 50 process, we expect this new format to provide the truest possible representation of where the influence lies amongst the sector’s key movers and shakers.

HealthInvestor is also delighted to announce that in 2017 it will be working with Kingsley Healthcare to launch the ‘One to Watch’ shortlist and Award, which will be presented to the sector star of the future on the night itself. Find out more here.

However, we still want to hear from our readers! Therefore the Grand Prix Award, the top award for the individual who’s deemed to have had the most successful year, will be voted for jointly by both the Power 50 and the HealthInvestor community. Click here to have your say and cast your vote.
