Major policy conference with Rt Hon Andy Burnham MP and Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP

Please see here for the conference downloads and communications.

This December Reform will hold a major conference to discuss the next steps of health reform after 2015. It will be the defining opportunity to bring together the strongest group of 300 health leaders and opinion makers to help set the agenda ahead of the 2015 General Election.

The 2015 General Election will be a pivotal moment for the long term direction of public policy. The Chancellor of the Exchequer has suggested that the 2015 Parliament will see spending settlements that are just as tight as the current one, if not tighter. As the Deputy Prime Minister has argued, 2015, and not 2010, will see the “first full blown scarcity election”. Health policy will be one of the most challenging issues for any future government. In the next Parliament budgets are expected to remain tight and there will be continued need to deliver value for money in the face of an ageing population and the growing prevalence of chronic illness.
