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 future of funding in the NHS, looking at priority areas, productivity and integration. It will bring together policymakers and key stakeholders in the health, social care and public health sectors.


Delegates will assess the impact of the 5-year funding increase for the NHS recently announced by the Prime Minister on the wider 10-year plan being developed for the NHS which is geared towards improving prevention, access, safety and quality of care, and integration between health and social care. 


Further sessions will also consider 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.


Discussion is also expected on the additional £215 million research funding package announced more recently by the Department of Health and Social Care, focused on patients living with long-term illnesses, mental health and obesity, new research units supporting decisions on specialised treatments, and training programmes for nurses and midwives.
