The Oakridge Health and Public Sector Think Tank was an initiative launched at the end of 2013 to address the very specific requirements and challenges faced by the health and care sectors. Following feedback, in 2017 we renamed this group and opened up the invitations to the Health and Public Sector environment so that it is now known as the Health and Public Sector Think Tank.
Three events are hosted each year, attendance is by invitation and available only to those involved in the health and public sector professions and organisations.
