The NHS Five Year Plan: Managing the Demand conference will explore the details of The Five Year Forward View (FYFV), a blueprint created by the NHS for future NHS renewal. Delegates will hear how these visionary proposals, produced by a coalition of interested parties, can support quality services and sustain the NHS during the coming years as unprecedented demand is set to continue. The conference programme has been specifically tailored to examine how the theoretical will be implemented in practice and to provide a full understanding of future models of working and the benefits they are designed to deliver.
Although the NHS has improved significantly over the last 15 years, it seems the NHS is never far from a newspaper headline or broadcast news bulletin. The word ‘crisis’ and ‘NHS’ too often appear in the same sentence. Modern day demands have radically heightened since the inception of the NHS in 1948. Changing demographics, particularly an ageing population, an epidemic of long term conditions and an upsurge in lifestyle risk conditions, compounded by greater public expectations, has put the NHS under almost intolerable pressure.
Key NHS services, such as A and E, GP surgeries and ambulance services have been struggling to cope with increased demand. A and E departments have been failing to meet targets for waiting times, hospitals have been declaring major incidents, GPs strain under mounting workloads whilst some ambulance trusts in England have had to declare critical alerts.
Funding constraints has only proved to exacerbate the situation. It is estimated that by 2020 there will be a £30bn shortfall in the NHS budget which will have severe consequences for services and patients.
The FYFV represents the collective thoughts of key leadership organisations and sets out ‘a roadmap for healthcare’ for the next five years with the intention to help mitigate current pressures.
Join us at The NHS Five Year Plan: Managing the Demand conference where we will hear a synopsis of why the NHS needs to change and the key elements within the 5YFV that aim to deliver transformation and sustainability. A line up of expert speakers will explain the theory whilst examples of the new models of working will described how the theory applies in practice. There will be ample opportunity to discuss, debate and question the way forward. Delegates will benefit from networking and knowledge sharing with fellow professionals to develop strategies which can be applied in developing and enhancing care models that will sustain the NHS into the future.
