Overview
Two years on from the Five Year Forward View for the NHS this forum will evaluate progress and the way forward for how best to implement new vanguards of care and transformation plans to create an NHS that works for everyone regardless of postcode. The event is set to take place just after the forming of a new Lords Select Committee The Long term Sustainability of the NHS that aims to identify what the NHS of the future may look like and what needs to be done to modernise it. The issues are particularly pertinent to discuss currently as the current government implements its mandate, the NHS invest heavily in ill-health prevention measures and as the effects and opportunities of Brexit become more apparent.
