NHS Alliance 2012: Significant support from GP's


NHS Alliance 2012: Significant support from GP's

In workshop Th2 "But will it work here? New thinking for long term conditions" at the NHS Alliance conference we discussed the methods used for our NHS innovation.

The prospect of speaking alongside Bob Gann, Director of Partnerships & Strategy of the NHS Commissioning Board in front of senior commissioners and a room full of CCG clinical leads from all over the country was enough to make me a little nervous this week.

However as it turned out I need not have worried.

The reception in the room was overwhelmingly supportive of our methodology with clinical leads & GP's asking incisive questions and describing our approach as "refreshing" and  "inspiring".  

I would like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who stayed behind, some queueing for 40 minutes to speak to us about getting involved with our Simple Telehealth & Florence NHS initiative.

I would also like thank the NHS Alliance for the invitation to participate at the event and in particular the teams from MSD and Appello for taking the time to show me some truly pragmatic, joined up solutions that I can only describe with wow!
