Public Sector Event
The Future of the NHS Conference 2014
Venue: University of Salford
Date: 11 Jun 2014
Synopsis: This conference will provide delegates with the opportunity to discuss and debate how the entire NHS workforce can renew its focus on high quality, compassionate care against the backdrop of ongoing reform and change. This event will bring key stake holders together from across health and social care and beyond.
The NHS needs to be able to deal with challenges ahead, such as an ageing population, a rise in the number of people with long-term conditions, lifestyle risk factors in the young and greater public expectations. Combined with rising costs and constrained financial resources, these trends threaten the long-term sustainability of the NHS. There have already been changes to make savings and improve productivity. The NHS is on track to find £20 billion of efficiency savings by 2015. However, without further changes to how services are delivered, a high-quality, yet ‘free at the point of use’ Health Service will not be available to future generations. Not only will the NHS become financially unsustainable, the safety and quality of patient care will decline.
A year on from radical reshapings of the health service, this conference will provide delegates with the opportunity to discuss and debate how the NHS workforce can renew its focus on high quality, compassionate care against the backdrop of ongoing reform and change.
