NHS Partners Network holds third Annual Partnerships Summit

NHS Partners Network Annual Partnerships Summit 2017

The NHS Partners Network held its third Annual Partnerships Summit in Central London at the end of November.

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 achieving the shared aims of improved population health, quality of care and value for money can be realised. The 2017 Partnerships Summit was an opportunity to learn about what is being done in different parts of the country to deliver these 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.

Over 100 delegates from both the NHS and independent health sector attended the summit to hear from and engage with keynote speakers including NHS Confederation Chief Executive, Niall Dickson the Health Minister Philip Dunne who emphasised the importance of the independent sector to the future of the NHS and explicitly called on Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) leaders to go out and engage with the local independent providers and utilise their capital, capacity and capability. 

Delegates also had the chance to hear from key speakers, including NHSPN member Alliance Medical and the NHS Employers Chief Executive Danny Mortimer, discuss the current workforce pressures in the health and care system and how both the NHS and independent sector can work together to recruit and retain the talent and capability needed to deliver world class health and care services. 

David Hare, Chief Executive of the NHS Partners Network said:

“I was delighted to welcome colleagues from across the health and care system to the third annual NHS Partners Network Summit. The independent sector is strongly committed to working with the NHS to deliver the best possible care for patients and our event was a fantastic opportunity to bring people together and share new ideas on how cooperation between the NHS and independent can meet the increasingly complex challenges the health service faces and improve patient outcomes.”
