You are invited to join a major two-day London conference on 25 and 26 September, hosted by HaCIRIC – Health and Care Infrastructure Research and Innovation Centre – the largest programme of its kind in the world. This event aims to answer difficult questions such as:
>Does the hospital have a future?
>>Should we centralise healthcare or localise it?
>>>How should we manage and pay for the solutions that are needed?
The event will launch ‘NHS 2030’, a major new report, commissioned by the Department of Health from the Policy Innovation Research Unit (PIRU), predicting what the NHS may look like in 2030. The ‘NHS 2030’ report is by Chris Evennett, who will open the conference, and HaCIRIC’s Professor James Barlow. Other speakers include Mike Farrar, Chief Executive of the NHS Confederation; Lord Warner, former Health Minister; Sunand Prasad, (Past President of RIBA and Senior Partner, Penoyre & Prasad); Professor Laurie McMahon (Cass Business School)
PLUS more from 30 thought leaders – most with innovation in their job description – from healthcare, industry, academia, policy and politics. Together, they will lay out the evidence for better infrastructure and processes to improve healthcare plus the ways to implement these novel solutions.
You should attend if you are trying – as an academic, policy maker, manager, clinician or industrialist – to understand the challenges in planning and delivering a twenty-first century healthcare system in Britain or abroad.
