Dr Adrian Plunkett is a Consultant Paediatric Intensivist and Clinical Lead at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. 
Adrian realised most of the care we deliver to patients is successful, and excellence in healthcare is highly prevalent. Preoccupation with avoiding error and harm in healthcare has resulted in the rise of rules and rigidity, which in turn has cultivated a culture of fear and stifled innovation. He founded Learning from Excellence in 2014 with the aim of studying excellence in healthcare to create new opportunities for learning whilst improving resilience and staff morale.
