NHS Partners Network holds second Annual Summit 2016

NHSPN summit

The NHS Partners Network held its second Annual Summit in Central London.

The Government has firmly committed to strengthening collaboration and partnership between the NHS and the independent sector in order to improve patient care. The NHSPN’s Annual Summit provided a great opportunity to reflect on the progress made in this area and discuss what more can be done to ensure the NHS and its partners can work together to tackle the growing challenges faced by the health system.

Over 100 delegates from both the NHS and independent health sector attended the summit to hear from and engage with keynote speakers including Jim Mackey, Chief Executive of NHS Improvement and Matthew Swindells, National Director at NHS England.

Delegates also had the chance to hear from NHSPN members including BMI Healthcare and Alliance Medical who reflected on their own experiences of partnerships with the NHS, highlighting examples of good practice and exploring what more can be done to break down traditional organisational divides and work in the best interests of NHS patients.

David Hare, Chief Executive of the NHS Partners Network said:

“I was delighted to welcome colleagues from across the health and care system to the second annual NHS Partners Network Summit. The independent sector is strongly committed to working with the NHS to deliver the best possible care for patients and our event was a fantastic opportunity to bring together people together and share new ideas on how cooperation between the NHS and independent sector can meet the increasingly complex challenges the NHS faces and improve patient outcomes.”
