HealthChat with Sir Andrew Dillon
Mon 18 July 2016, 17:30 – 20:30 BST
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 the Royal 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.
