Matt Neligan

Director of System Transformation
NHS England and NHS Improvement

Matt leads the national teams supporting the development of Integrated Care Systems, working alongside regional directors, to help transform how local services are integrated and supported to deliver improved population health outcomes. He and his teams help to ensure that integrated care systems enable NHS organisations to work in partnership with local councils and others, to take collective responsibility for managing resources, delivering the Long Term Plan, and improving the health of the population they serve.

Matt has over twenty-five years of experience in leading NHS organisations to make a difference to services and to improve outcomes for patients and communities. He has worked in local services across Yorkshire, London and the South East, principally in commissioning but also in acute hospital management, primary care and integrated roles across the NHS and local government. Before joining NHS England and NHS Improvement he led data and analytical teams in NHS Digital to transform the way in which data is harnessed for improving health.
