HealthChat with Ed Smith

														<p class=

See more details at Eventbrite

When: 26 Sep 2016

Ed Smith is Chairperson of NHS Improvement, the offspring from the union of Monitor and the TDA. He also holds the Pro-Chancellorship of Birmingham University, is a NED for the Dept of Transport, a member of the competition & markets authority and Treasurer of Chatham House. Previous to all of this he held senior roles at PWC. In short, this is a busy man!

He is a highly influential figure within the healthcare machinations of the NHS and its forward strategy, so it is fair to say that candles are burning to extinction from both ends at present. Certainly the political fall out from Brexit and the uncertainty that pervades all public services in the wake of the leadership vacuum mean that his sage hand has perhaps never been more needed.

What is the NHS ‘pitch’ to the DH and No11 post-austerity? With Trust CEO’s apparently now breaking budgets as a sign of collective solidarity, how does he manage to catalyse a holding of the line? Is the JD’s action simply the vanguard for a winter of discontent from other health unions? What does he say to the hundreds of thousands of front line NHS workers to inspire them in this period of unprecedented demand and uncertain money?

Roy Lilley is asking the questions in what will be a fascinating and deeply insightful evening that you dare not miss. Ed Smith doesn’t have a hugely high profile but, my goodness, he is an ‘influence’ VIP.

HealthChat with Sir Andrew Dillon

See more details at Eventbrite

When: 18 Jul 2016

Sir Andrew Dillon is the Chief Executive of the National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE) and is Roy Lilley’s July HealthChat guest. He is NICE’s founding CEO having been appointed at the organisation’s birth in 1999. Prior to this, he was General Manager of theRoyal Free Hospital and CEO of St Georges Healthcare NHS Trust.

NICE is, in many ways, an intriguing organisation. Founded to be the bulwark between the health service users and the pharmaceutical industry sellers, it faces a daunting task that frequently overspills into public debate and rancour. Sitting at the helm is Sir Andrew, in a role that requires both the most delicate touch and a fortitude for making decisions that can directly impact peoples’ lives.

How does he see the role of NICE developing? Is it delivering its brief? Is it truly a bulwark or, increasingly, an instrument of government? Is the assessment model fit for purpose? Does the organisation have the confidence of the health service and pharmaceutical companies?

Come along and hear his answers at what is certain to be an absorbing evening of insight and opinion.

HealthChat with Duncan Selbie

See more details at Eventbrite

When: 21 Jun 2016

Duncan Selbie is Roy Lilley’s guest for our June HealthChat at the Kings Fund. As Chief Executive of Public Health England (PHE), he has an enormous breadth of responsibility across all walks of life. Previously Chief Exec of Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals and previous to that the first Director General of Commissioning, Duncan Selbie has beenworking in the health service for 36 years, so he will be well aware of the stresses and strains that public health (or lack of it) places on the NHS.

Perhaps one of the principal issues to discuss is the take over of the public health budget (£5.45bn over 2 years) by local authorities in 2013. Has it worked? What do we have to show for it? Is the nation’s obesity, sexual health, elderly loneliness, smoking and such like improving or sliding? What went on with sugar tax and accusations from Parliament ofwitheld information? What is his priority plan for the remainder of this Parliament?

This will be a blockbuster evening. Public Health is a huge topic, dripping with relevance for the long term future of the NHS itself. And Duncan Selbie is the man at the epicentre.

HealthChat with Lord Carter

See more details at Eventbrite

When: 18 May 2016

Lord Carter of Coles has been busy. His ‘Operational Productivity & Performance in English NHS Acute Hospitals’, published in February, is an 87 page dissection of processes, practices and prices that addresses variation data. It provides 15 key recommendations that the NHS will be busy addressing in order to make the £5.5bn efficiency savings that he says can be achieved.

Are these efficiencies genuinely deliverable? is there an authentic appetite in trusts to deliver them? Does the ‘model hospital’ exist? Why are the variations that he identifies there in the first place? After nearly 7 years of austerity and a static spend budget, why haven’t hospitals been on this case anyway? What happens when we have delivered the £5.5bn? Will this go the same way as his ‘future of pathology’ recommendations?

Roy Lilley will be in the Chair and putting the questions in what is certain to be an absorbing and insightful evening. Lord Carter’s report is as high profile as it gets and the recommendations go to the heart of NHS and supply leadership, so this will be an immensely popular event. Please book immediately to avoid disappointment.

HealthChat with Professor Sir Mike Richards

See more details at Eventbrite

When: 01 Mar 2016

Professor Sir Mike Richards, Chief Inspector of Hospitals at the Care Quality Commission, is Roy Lilley’s guest at our March HealthChat in what is certain to be a lively and effervescent evening.

The CQC is faced with complex and challenging issues – how to be an inspection-based guardian of standards in healthcare whilst that healthcare system itself is strained as never before by the perfect storm of exploding demand combined with flat financing. What is the vision of the Chief Inspector? Can that vision be fulfilled? Is inspection itself an effective means of driving quality? What results have been achieved? Are they worth the investment in the inspection regime? Is there an alternative? How can the CQC win the trust of the healthcare system it is designed to protect?

For any observer of the NHS in England, this is a box-office evening. One hesitates to use the word ‘corners’, but it is the equivalent of Lilley in the red trunks with silver tassles versus Sir Mike in the blue with gold trim for what will be a heavyweight verbal and intellectual contest.

HealthChat Liverpool

See more details at Eventbrite

When: 11 Feb 2016

In 2016 the HealthChat events will be going on the road and our first venue is to be Aintree Hospital in the magnificent city of Liverpool. Roy Lilley’s guest panel for the evening will be Sir Ian Gilmore (Consultant Liver Specialist and Chair of the Mayoral Commission that led to the ‘Healthy Liverpool’ programme), Dr Simon Bowers (local GP and Clinical Vice Chair of Liverpool CCG) and Roz Gladden (Deputy Mayor of Liverpool and Cabinet Lead Member for Adult Social Care & Health).

This promises to be a scintillating evening of insight, debate and comment around the key health and social care issues confronting Liverpool and the wider Merseyside conurbation. Among key themes will be vertical integration of care, how the money will work, how leadership will be organised and held to account and the extent to which the key organisations and people can be left to get on with running Liverpool health & social care unfettered by central control from Westminster and Victoria.

HealthChat with Stephen Dorrell

See more details at Eventbrite

When: 02 Feb 2016

Stephen Dorrell is a former Secretary of State for Health (95-97) and was Chair of the Commons Health Select Committee from 2010-14. Having stood down from his Parliamentary role at the last election, today he is Chair of the NHS Confederation and maintains a consultancy role with KPMG. His last weeks as an MP were noted for his outspoken attack on the Health & Social Care Act in a Guardian interview, when he agreed that the reforms were the ‘biggest mistake of this Parliament’.

As Chair of the Confed, he leads an organisation that will be at the epicentre of the demands made by the recent spending review and evolving health economy as well as the expectations of a service battered by scandal and political machinations.

What is Stephen Dorrell’s view of the current health landscape? How will the NHS Confederation articulate and design a system capable of meeting the demands upon its members? Does the injection of money from the treasury offer a lifeline or a noose?

HealthChat with Professor Sir Cyril Chantler

See more details at Eventbrite

When: 14 Jan 2016

Professor Sir Cyril Chantler is a member of the Advisory Board of the All Party Parliamentary Health Group. He has been Chairman of UCL Partners and of the Kings Fund and is variously a governor, trustee or Chairman for a number of charitable trusts and fellowships. He was knighted for services to medicine in 1996.

If there is a more experienced, knowledgeable, thoughtful and enlightening individual in and around the Health Service then we have yet to meet them!

This is a perfect HealthChat with which to start 2016. The insight and perspective that Sir Cyril will bring to the evening is certain to challenge, inform and educate and you can expect some strong opinions and discussions to take place. Can the NHS survive its mounting challenges? How can integrated care be catalysed? What do the key personalities believe and how might concensus be achieved?

HealthChat with Janet Davies

See more details at Eventbrite

When: 01 Dec 2015

Janet Davies is the new CEO and General Secretary at the Royal College of Nursing, stepping into the position vacated by Peter Carter. It is a huge challenge given the pressure that nurses across the health spectrum can expect to come under through the perfect storm ofheightening service demand, seriously stretched finance and unfilled vacancies.

How will she balance the competing demands of front line nursing staff, political pressure and expectations of the general public? How will she tackle the issues of nursing quality and nursing compassion in such a challenging environment? What is her plan? What are herpriorities? How will she engage with the 5YFV and NHSE?

This is certain to be an enthralling and important evening as Janet takes her seat with Roy Lilley asking the questions, only 3 months into her tenure. Come along and ask your own questions too!

Please book early as demand is expected to exceed ticket availability very rapidly. Registration is from 5.30pm with the event starting at 6pm and a drinks reception to follow the HealthChat.

														<p class=

See more details at Eventbrite

When: 19 Nov 2015

Philip Hunt, Lord Hunt of Kings Heath,  is a Labour member of the House of Lords. He was Chairman of the Heart of England NHS Trust until last year and has held several political appointments in the health sector and elsewhere, most recently as Ed Milliband’s spokesman on Home Affairs in the House of Lords as well as being Labour’s shadow deputy leader of the House of Lords.

In 2011 he contributed to a book entitled ‘What Next for Labour? Ideas for a New Generation’ and authored the piece ‘Our NHS – The Labour Party Challenge’.

Given the seismic changes currently being addressed by his political party, now is a good time to take stock of where Labour stands on NHS policy, how it can mount an effective and coherent opposition platform and how the political machinations will influence the all-important issue of funding.

Roy Lilley will once again be asking the questions of this hugely experienced, high conviction politician and health commentator (he resigned as Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Health over the invasion of Iraq). It promises to be a fascinating and enlightening evening and you are urged to book now in order to secure your place for what is sure to be an over-subscribed event.

														<p class=

See more details at Eventbrite

When: 21 Oct 2015

Keith McNeil has, until very recently, been the Chief Executive of Addenbrookes hospital in Cambridge, one of the nation’s highest profile hospitals and leadership positions. he resigned in late September in the wake of what was described as a ‘critical’ CQC report that resulted in the trust being put into special measures.

What is the full story of what has taken place? Why is NHS leadership now such an apparently precarious occupation? What role is the money playing in inspection (or is it the other way around)? What lessons can be learnt from what appears to be a terrible mess that affects not just the hospital personnel but the reputation that they carry and the that of the research facilities that they partner with?

Roy Lilley will be interviewing Keith McNeil in what is certain to be a revealing, insightful and absorbing evening that will sell out in a heartbeat.

Please book immediately. We expect tickets to sell out very rapidly indeed and you need to act now in order to be certain of your seat in the audience.

HealthChat with Sir Robert Naylor

														<p class=

See more details at Eventbrite

When: 16 Sep 2015

Sir Robert Naylor is the Chief Executive of University College London Hospitals (UCLH) and perhaps one of the health CEOs best suited to act as a litmus test for new policies, pathways and initiatives – of which he has seen plenty in 25 years as an NHS CEO, 15 of which he has been at UCLH. He has been an advisor to numerous strategy groups concerned with health reform and is an advocate of organisational reform as a means of galvanising clinical and leadership teams.

Roy and he have plenty to discuss – the whole future of secondary care, where theVanguards fit, whether big hospitals are sustainable and how the money challenge can be met. You can also expect a lively debate over management thinking and leadership fundamentals.

This will be an immensely popular event that is expected to sell out very quickly, so please book immediately. Dont leave it until after your summer hols – do it now, or be disappointed!

HealthChat with Lord Darzi

														<p class=

See more details at Eventbrite

When: 15 Jul 2015

Lord Darzi of Denham (Ara Darzi) remains as a hugely influential figure in health policy design and thought. As one of the world’s leading surgeons at Imperial College (where he holds the Paul Hamlyn Chair of Surgery), Lord Darzi is uniquely qualified as a clinician recognised internationally as a leading advocate for applying innovative reform to health service delivery.

In September 2013, Lord Darzi was appointed by the Mayor of London to lead a review of health, wellbeing and services in London. The London Health Commission (which reported in October 2014) proposed the toughest measures seen in the UK to tackle the “obesity emergency” including a call for the Mayor to rewrite the London Plan to give borough councils greater autonomy in banning takeaways from within 400m of school gates.

In his political career under the Blair Labour government, Lord Darzi is perhaps best known for his Polyclinic recommendations into the future for primary care – again a hot topic in 2015 – which many commentators acknowledge as still required.

Roy Lilley will interview Lord Darzi at the Kings Fund in what is certain to be a rapidly ‘sold out’ event. Please book now to ensure your seat in the audience.

The evening starts at 5.30pm with registration and a drinks reception before the HealthChat commences at 6pm until approximately 7.30pm.

When: 19 Jan 2015

Primary care has a great deal to ponder. Practice capacities, patient demands, political expectations, public perceptions, shrinking budgets, new configurations, quality inspections, integration desires, technology challenges – it’s got the lot. So can it rise to the challenge or will it crumble under the pressure? What will primary care look, feel and sound like in 5 or 10 years from now? Is the current model sustainable or will it have to change? In either case, how will it do so?

We have gathered no less than 3 of primary care’s most eminent influencers to debate the matter with the incomparable Roy Lilley.

To quote Gail Adams of UNISON when Jane was appointed to the role in 2013; “this job is so big it can be seen from space”. What type of person do the martians see?

What is the real story behind demands for minimum staffing levels? How has the nursing profession responded in the wake of the Francis report recommendations and what should be the next steps? What happens after 2015 once the new round of public finance kicks in? Are nurses being effectively led, inspired and rewarded? What is the CNO’s take on private healthcare providers and the extent to which nursing is led by them?

They are some of our questions – what are yours? You will have the opportunity to ask them of Jane once Roy Lilley has finished his typically forthright interview.

Dame Ruth combines practical guidance and advice with a Roy Lilley-led interview. This is a breath of fresh air for managers and leaders involved in health service leadership and is designed to boost your confidence and effectiveness.

Dame Ruth Carnall was Chief Executive of NHS London until April this year when the H&SC Act reforms came into effect for the SHA’s. Her expertise and verve in leading NHS London earned her immense respect and admiration.

Registration is from 4.30pm with the event starting at 5pm – you can work a full day before feasting on Ruth’s insight and expertise.

Register without delay – with only 80 places available this is certain to sell-out very quickly.
