Upcoming events

Thursday 16 November: A conversation with Stephen Dorrell

On 16 November NHS Partners Network will be holding "A conversation with Rt Hon Stephen Dorrell", a joint event with Capsticks, from 4.00pm - 5.30pm, followed by a drinks reception in central London.

With Stephen’s extensive experience as a former longstanding Conservative Member of Parliament, Health Secretary, Chair of the Commons Health Select Committee and now Chair of the NHS Confederation, this event - chaired by NHS Partners Network’s Chief Executive David Hare - will be an opportunity to hear Stephen’s thoughts on what’s in store for the new Parliament and what that means for the health and care system including the role of the private and voluntary sectors within the NHS. To register your attendance please contact sejal.patel@nhsconfed.org.

Thursday 30 November: NHSPN Annual Partnerships Summit 2017

The NHS Partners Network will be holding its third NHS Partnerships Summit on 30 November 2017 at The Law Society, Central London.

With the NHS now working towards delivering the Five Year Forward View action plan there is a growing need for all parts of the NHS to come together to ensure that the triple aims of improved population health, quality of care and cost-control can be realised. The 2017 Partnerships Summit will be an opportunity to learn about what is being done in different parts of the country to deliver the triple aims and to hear from national leaders about how they are supporting the system to transition to new ways of working including the development of Accountable Care Systems.
