Areas of Expertise: telehealth, digital health implementation, service redesign, overcoming barriers to large scale adoption of proven technologies, stakeholder engagement, healthcare strategy

Hadleigh has worked in the health sector for over a decade, helping to shape the digital agenda, specifically working tirelessly to implement proven technology at scale where adoption is slow. At the heart of Hadleigh’s ethos is improving patient care.

As a qualified programme and project professional, Hadleigh has worked across many departments and organisations within the NHS and in the private health sector, facilitating and delivering key policy changes. Organisations Hadleigh has worked for include the NHS Technology Adoption Centre, NHS Direct, Eastern Cheshire CCG, The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), American-diagnostics company Alere and SME Safe Patient Systems Ltd. Hadleigh has also acted as a Non-Executive Director for Community Interest Company Nine.

Hadleigh has a track record of delivering specific programmes on a national scale with strict timescales and budgets to achieve overall improvements in the way that healthcare is delivered in the UK.

Some of his biggest achievements include:

  • Influencing policy for breast cancer through the introduction of a new national technology implementation programme which would go onto saving 11,000 avoidable second operations per year
  • Implementation of telehealth at scale across Yorkshire, introducing system-wide change in the way services were delivered, which also lead to the development of a telehealth adoption conceptual model as part of Hadleigh’s Master’s degree
  • Development of a series of online guidance for the management of patients with long term conditions through the use of technology
  • Introducing and scaling up an electronic patient record initiative across the North East Ambulance Service locality

Hadleigh was recognised for his achievements by the Higher Education Academy and was presented with an award for his ‘contributions to the economy and society’.

Hadleigh currently works for NHS Digital, heading up a national programme aiming to improve direct care through digital technology. He is responsible for both the National Record Locator Service and National Events Management Service within the Integrating Care programme of NHS Digital. These two capabilities will bring technology, service redesign and interoperability into a new and exciting place across the NHS. Both are due to go live in late 2018/early 2019.

Convenzis Healthcare Event testimonials

What our clients say about us

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!


In view of the recent NHS Oncology Conference organised by CONVENZIS which was sponsored by Pascoe Healthcare Ltd, CONVENZIS exhibited professionalism through credible organisation, invitation of delegates/respectable Speakers and general conduct of the entire conference. This has also shown that CONVENZIS is a great partner in business which is fundamental to ROI of partnering Companies even in the wake of the pandemic.

Pascoe Healthcare

“We’ve worked with the Convenzis team for several years and their events are a regular occurrence for us. Not only is the content always extremely topical, but the speakers are always excellent and the support from the team ahead of and during the events is exceptional. The team are incredibly receptive to feedback and always goes above and beyond – a real pleasure to work with!”


“It has been a pleasure to work with Matt and Dan for the past few events. Everything has always run smoothly and we’ve always managed to gather a large number of interested parties due to the events they have hosted.

They are also very helpful and timely in their responses, which has made working with them very easy “
