NHS: Delivering the Ten Year Plan

  • Wednesday, 03 April 2019
  • Mary Ward House Conference & Exhibition Centre
  • 10:00 - 16:30
  • Overview

The NHS: Ten-Year Plan conference will provide resolutions to fiscal and service provision challenges that are fettering the NHS, in addition to scrutinising the governments proposed funding pledges and how government's investment pledges will provide the basis for the Ten-Year Plan.

2018 marked the 70th anniversary of the NHS – however, the anniversary celebrations cannot outshine the necessity for reappraisal of the funding and services provided by the health and social care sector to ensure sustainability over the next seven decades. This event will showcase innovative tech-driven health and social care initiatives that could be adopted in order to improve the quality of care offered by the NHS and lead to a re-allocation of resources and capital - supporting the health and social care sector for another decade.
