About the healthcare advisory board

The healthcare advisory board meets three time a year to discuss key topics and challenges facing UK health systems. Their expertise helps us to better understand industry dynamics, which informs our focus areas so we can best support industry.

Chaired by Sara Ford (executive director of strategy, marketing & change at NHS Supply Chain) the board’s aim is to improve patient safety, reduce regulatory non-compliance and collaboratively, help to drive the strategic direction of GS1 standards adoption across healthcare.
