News item posted: 04 April 2014

The Health Service Journal yesterday unveiled their list of the '50 most innovative people in UK health services.'

Among the 'Top Innovators' selected was Lord Victor Adebowale CBE, Chief Executive of Turning Point.

Below is HSJ's reason for his inclusion:

"Lord Adebowale is widely credited with changing the way in which the third sector works with the NHS, as well as public perceptions of mental health. Since 2001, he has been chief executive of Turning Point, a social enterprise delivering NHS services to people with complex needs, such as alcohol and drug misuse and learning disabilities. He is also a member of the NHS Future Forum on integrated services and sits on the board of NHS England. What the judges said: "Victor has been a service user and patient advocate, consistently, over a decade."
