Westminster Health Forum

The future of funding in the NHS: priority areas, productivity and integration

Morning, Thursday, 22nd November 2018

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will be a timely opportunity to discuss the next steps for funding in the NHS, looking at priority areas, productivity and integration.


Delegates will examine the impact of the 5-year funding increase for the NHS recently announced by the Prime Minister and the wider 10-year plan being developed for the NHS which will be geared towards mental health, cancer, cardiovascular disease, children’s services and reducing health inequalities.


Attendees will also discuss what more could be done to prepare for the winter demand, following the Government announcement that hospitals will receive £145 million to upgrade wards, redevelop A&Es and provide extra beds.


Further sessions will assess the initial response to the social care green paper, which is expected to be published in autumn following a delay to the publication and will set out plans for how government proposes to provide a sustainable long-term solution to improve care for older people.


Sessions will also cover how the new funding will affect the health and social care sectors more immediately - examining priorities for resource allocation, utilisation and efficiency as well as possible challenges, and further issues for the future of funding in the NHS.
