Amanda Hume

Former Clinical Commissioning Group Chief Officer
Managing Director, Amanda Hume Associates
Recently established my own consultancy company having served the NHS for nearly 30 years in a variety of roles including HR, OD, Workforce Development, Governance, Planning, Strategy, Commissioning, leading complex change and System development; working with multiple partners including Local Authorities, the Police, Housing , Fire and the Voluntary sector. One of my proudest moment was establishing an organisation from scratch and building and leading a team of managers and clinicians committed to improving health and care for the 300,000 people we served.
It has been a pleasure working with the NHSCC Board nationally and I have gained huge satisfaction from coaching and mentoring other leaders and very much intend to continue to do so as well as exploring how best I can support leaders and their teams to achieve their goals and potential. I will continue to champion the power of coaching and the importance of paying attention to the 'soft stuff', and the impact of organisational culture, values and behaviours.

We are the Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria (AHSN NENC) and we are proud to work across a wonderful region, supporting innovation in all its forms within the NHS and Social Care.

We work with our Member Organisations including the NHS Trusts, CCGs and Universities across the NENC to help them identify, evaluate, adopt and disseminate transformative innovation. We work a lot with industry too, as a source of innovation and also to help industry access the expertise within the NHS that is so crucial to the development, testing and deployment of products and services that are the basis of the UK’s Life Sciences sector.

As part of a national network of 15 AHSNs, and with colleagues across the country, we collaborate to make nationally important innovation visible and accessible throughout the NHS.

Our team is made up of:
  • An active and engaged Board. The Board is made up of senior NHS, Clinical Commissioning Group (CCGs) and Trust employees from across the NENC region which ensures our priorities are aligned with the regional healthcare landscape.
  • An Executive and a Core Team who provide central support for the programmes we deliver.
  • A range of networks of practitioners across the region who understand what needs to be done, are experts in their fields and are busy, as part of their day jobs, constantly improving the care system by generating, evaluating, adopting and refining the technology and processes they use.

We are dedicated to:
  • Improving population health
  • Facilitating transformational patient safety and quality improvement
  • Supporting economic growth.
