"I have known David Gilbert since early in my time as CEO of National Voices. He is a valued colleague, a powerful service user champion and one of the most interesting, engaging and thoughtful people on the patient empowerment scene. He has been very influential in shaping my own thinking and approach".
The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust
"David Gilbert's contribution on how we take our involvement strategy at the Trust to the next level has been invaluable. His approach is challenging and sensitive at the same time and he has brought a wealth of insights on how, in a meaningful way,people who use services can be put at the centre of our work. I and my team have really enjoyed working with him.
St Giles Trust
"David provided advice and support recently for our senior team on health commissioning, which was both illuminating and engaging. The session was pitched just right and enabled the team to have an informed discussion around the potential options we could consider and the strategy required. As a result, we have developed an approach towards health related funding which starts from a more knowledgeable position, and already identified routes to funding. Thanks to InHealth Associates, we feel more confident in pursuing these opportunities".
"I have worked with David Gilbert of InHealth Associates regularly since 2007. I have always been impressed by his unique combination of ‘patient’ focus, informed by his own experience and extensive networks, and his in depth knowledge of the working of local and national health decision making. David has a very flexible and knowledgeable approach to engaging staff and patients in health systems and in finding ways that work beyond the usual (often stale) structures. David has effectively delivered research projects for us and has worked on the development of several funding bids. I can highly recommend David and InHealth Associates as a partner".
