The future of funding in the NHS: priority areas, productivity and integration

This seminar will be a timely opportunity to discuss the future of funding in the NHS, looking at priority areas, productivity and integration.

As the agenda includes discussion relevant to AHPs, including supporting workforce development - we thought it might be of interest.

The agenda also includes keynote contributions from Niall Dickson, Chief Executive, NHS Confederation; Chris Hopson, Chief Executive, NHS Providers and Sara Gorton, Head of Health, UNISON.

Delegates will assess the impact of the 5-year funding increase for the NHS recently announced by the Prime Minister and the wider 10-year plan being developed for the NHS which will be geared towards mental health, cancer, cardiovascular disease, children’s services and reducing health inequalities.

Discussion is also expected on the technology funding boost of more than £400 million announced by the new Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, as well as the additional £215 million research funding package.

Further sessions will consider how the new funding will affect the health and social care sectors more immediately - examining priorities for resource allocation, utilisation and efficiency as well as possible challenges, and further issues for the future of funding in the NHS.

Overall, areas for discussion in the agenda include:

The future for NHS funding and service design - opportunities and challenges in the 5-year NHS funding plan;
Engaging providers in meeting future funding and efficiency targets;
Realising the potential from estates and procurement;
Integrating health and social care and key issues for funding allocations for public health services; and Priorities for ensuring patient safety and the delivery of personalised care.
