Major policy conference with Simon Stevens

Reform is delighted to be holding a major conference on the future of NHS commissioning with a keynote speech from Simon Stevens, Chief Executive of NHS England.

This Parliament has seen historic changes to NHS commissioning with the advent of clinically-led commissioning. Yet as commissioners and providers operate within these new structures many of the old challenges prevail. Commissioning according to activity rather than outcomes has often delivered fragmented care and poor value for money and, while some CCGs have begun to explore innovative approaches, this has yet to be implemented at pace and scale. Alongside CCGs, NHS England has taken on a more central role in commissioning. There is also growing interest in the future of specialised and primary care commissioning and the potential role of local authorities, health and wellbeing boards and other organisations in the new commissioning landscape.

The conference will provide a defining opportunity to debate these issues with a high level group of over 150 commissioners and leaders in the healthcare debate. The conference is kindly sponsored by KPMG.

Attendance is by invitation only. For more information please contact David Miller on the details below.
