The Government has set out its ambition for “an NHS which achieves results that are amongst the best in the world”, while at the same time delivering £20 billion in productivity improvements over the course of this Parliament. To achieve this, the Government has introduced reforms to the NHS that aim to make it more accountable to patients, clinically led, and with greater freedoms for providers. The aim of this new system is to deliver organic change to services in the NHS. This major conference will explore how the new NHS is taking shape and what will be the challenges and opportunities for patients, commissioners and providers. It will take place shortly before the new system comes into effect in April 2013. It will bring together the key leaders and stakeholders in the new system and seek to set the agenda for the new organisations.
