The NHS is facing many challenges. Greater demand on services is fuelled by an increasingly aged and frail population whilst patient expectation is higher than in previous times. Major new challenges exist due to increasing obesity and unhealthy lifestyles and resultant clinical problems such as diabetes. Greater demand means increased costs and an increase in the number of medical staff required and the pressures they face. Whilst advances in medical science and treatments are always welcome they are very often expensive adding further pressure to NHS budgets at a time of fiscal constraints.

 

NHS leaders are constantly having to make difficult decision and choices as to where their priorities lie. However, one area that cannot be compromised is that of the quality of care patients receive. Better quality of care means better outcomes, which in turn results in lower costs.

 

The NHS Quality of Care: Closing the Quality and Care Gap conference will examine how the delivery of care has changed post the Francis and Berwick reports. The programme will focus on the positive steps being made to ensure the safety and care needs of patients are being met to the highest possible standards. The event will feature a highly informative agenda featuring examples of best practice and showcase innovative ways of working which delegates may feel appropriate to implement into their own organisations. Throughout the day there will be ample opportunity to discuss, debate and knowledge share through a series of question and answer sessions and networking breaks.
