On 17 July, the most pioneering and dedicated female leaders (and male) from across the health sector gathered at an event in London’s Canary Wharf to celebrate HSJ’s list of the 50 most inspirational women in healthcare.

Clinicians, health scientists, managers, academics, trade unionists, campaigners and whistleblowers are included in the list of female leaders helping to shape and lead healthcare in the UK today. Here are some of the photos from the event.
