Why should trust professionals attend?

Why should trust professionals attend?

Most NHS trusts continue to face significant operational and performance difficulties, ambitious control totals and serious workforce shortages. With the provider sector deficit forecast to be £558 million by the end of March, the Government’s call for all trusts to achieve financial balance in the mid-term is a big ask.

The challenges facing trusts were manifested in NHS Improvement’s Q2 performance figures, which showed 89% of acute trusts being in deficit (67% of all trusts). A&E visits were up 3.9% on the same period in 2017 and there were 103,000 vacancies in the provider sector.

The NHS plan presents a chance to reset the provider sector but only with adequate funding and realistic targets. Trusts are under pressure to work together to pool resources and expertise, gain economies of scale, meet efficiency targets, secure System Transformation Funding, and to collaborate more effectively within STPs and ICSs. As a result, we are seeing some ambitious reconfiguration programmes in leading ICSs from South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw to Greater Manchester to Dorset.

Trust Chief Executives, Directors of Transformation, Finance Directors, Clinical Directors, Nursing Directors, Programme Directors and their teams, should attend for:

  • An overview of the challenges facing NHS trusts and how the NHS long-term plan will address them
  • Case-based solutions to operational and financial pressures
  • A focus on workforce, recruitment and retention and reducing agency costs
  • Ideas on reducing demand, tackling unwarranted variation, improving patient flow and tackling delayed transfers of care
  • Case studies on how to integrate providers across ICSs and STPs and work more closely with CCGs
  • Expert advice and first-hand experience from major NHS trust reconfigurations
  • How to choose between the vast array of new technologies available to NHS trusts and implement them successfully
  • A Finance, Efficiency and Procurement Theatre with sessions on how to meet productivity and efficiency targets, reduce deficits, meet control totals, bid for capital funding and more
  • An NHS Estate Optimisation and Transformation stream focusing on all aspects of estates strategy, including new funding models, managing existing PFI contracts, incorporating new  technologies, designing new buildings, maximising use and revenue from existing estates and land disposal.
  • Conference theatres and streams highlighting CCG-led innovation in: Workforce Transformation; The Future of Primary Care; Mental Health; Finance, Efficiency and Procurement; Prevention and Healthier Communities, and Improving Care Pathways
  • A lively mix of new policy announcements, hot topic debates, inspirational addresses and out-of-the box thinking in the Keynote Theatre.
  • Hear from Government ministers, new joint directors of NHS England and Improvement, big names from local government and inspirational thinkers and doers from across the NHS and local government
