Following on from the recent announcement of the extended discussion period of the Health and Social Care Bill, this timely seminar will explore in greater detail the proposals to create a more responsive NHS, and the introduction of the patient champion HealthWatch. Sessions will look at issues raised by NHS reforms, such as how the commissioning reforms will operate to incorporate patient feedback and how these services will be held to account, and the debate surrounding the opening up of commissioning contracts to Any Willing Provider.

Delegates will also discuss how fairness and optimum outcomes can continue to be delivered whilst pursuing greater user choice and participation. The seminar will also address service user rights and experience, with sessions focusing on the initiatives and resources available to inform users and deliver feedback to service providers, and further government commitments to privacy, dignity and respect for patients.
