  • Overview

Help to create a new era of healthcare… The ambition of the NHS with the Five Year Forward View was to set out a shared view about the kind of health and care service that England deserves in 2020.

The commitment to at least £8bn of additional funding announced by the government is destined to support the changes needed to shape the future NHS. To meet the needs of patients in a sustainable way, the NHS needs to close three gaps in health care: the health and wellbeing gap, the care and quality gap, and the funding and efficiency gap.

The NHS cannot close these three gaps alone. It will need the cooperation between partners across health and social care in local and national government, individuals and their communities, the corporate and charitable sectors to use their levers, unleashing local energies to help create a new era of healthcare.

The NHS must become a pro-active agent of change, taking bold action in partnership with individuals, local government and third sector bodies to ‘bend the curve’ on predicted trends. Join us at the NHS Five Year Plan: Implementation and Progress to hear how new models of care can drive better outcomes for patients and the health system.

Chair’s Opening Address

  • Chris Day, Director of Engagement, Care Quality Commission (confirmed)
"New Models of Working"

The establishment of the Five Year Forward View models of care was meant to dissolve the traditional boundaries between primary, secondary and community care to deliver more integrated and personalised care. Has this happened or has the care and quality gap grown rather than shrunk?

"Overcoming Workforce Challenges"

The delivery of the Five Year Forward View could be put in jeopardy due to shortages and “critical pressures” in the NHS workforce, according to the Kings Fund. The National Advisory Board has been established and tasked with advising on workforce issues, to ensure 5YFV implementation does not falter.

Coffee in the Networking Area

  • David Buck, Senior Fellow, The King’s Fund (confirmed)

Although a recent report has found that the proportion of life spent in good health is increasing in England health inequalities are still entrenched across the UK.

"Public Health and Implementing the Five Year Forward View"

Although there are many wonderful examples of innovation and transformation to be found both within Vanguards and outside them , the challenges remain. Scale, Pace and Culture change continue to be elusive . It is up to all of us to ensure that they become a reality.

Case Study

"Back to the Future – Is Old Fashioned Communication the Way Forward?"

In the good old days, GPs used to be able to talk to local hospital consultants on the phone. Progress means much of this contact has been lost as electronic communications are considered to be more modern. But has this resulted in better care for the patient? This case study discusses how a number of projects to reintroduce phone communication between GPs and local consultants have improved patient care and delivered whole system efficiencies across the local healthcare environment.

  • George McNamara, Head of Policy and Public Affairs, Alzheimer’s Society (confirmed)
"Integration and Dementia, a Voluntary Perspective"

People with dementia have to navigate through a complex web of care. New models of care vanguards presents a unique opportunity to radically transform the way services and support are delivered to meet the health needs of people with dementia and their carers.


Question and Answer Session
