On 15 November, NHS Partners Network will be holding its Annual Partnerships Summit at BMA House in central London. Now in its fourth year, the Summit is a fixture in the health calendar and this year will be focusing on how sector partnerships can help deliver the vision of the 10 year plan.

With a pressing need to ensure that every pound of NHS funding is spent wisely and well the event will examine some of the key opportunities for the NHS and independent sector to work together to improve care for patients.
