With daily headlines about the pressure on front-line NHS services and funding shortfalls, this forum will build upon the extensive work already done policymakers, entrepreneurs, and healthcare professionals on forward planning and long term sustainability of our health service, and will allow an exchange of ideas beneficial to all stakeholders.
The recent Lords Select Committee report has identified several key areas of concern, and analysed how progress is being made several years into the Five Year Forward View. How are the new vanguards innovating our healthcare, for example, and what is being done about prevention and early planning? How can we create a health service where patients take greater responsibility, and have maximum autonomy?
Digitisation of the NHS has been slow and costly, but has the potential to revolutionise the ways doctors and nurses consult with patients. Delegates will investigate how our changing technological world can revolutionise healthcare without sacrificing patient services, how Big Data can be harnessed whilst simultaneously addressing privacy concerns, and the protection of our NHS from cyber attacks.
Much work as already been done to empower the individual so they have more control and responsibility over their own health and well being, Our speakers will link this to technology and scientific advancement, and attempt to draw the lines between public health and personal responsibility, for the benefit of all policymakers and care givers.
