HealthChat with Stephen Dorrell
Tue 2 February 2016, 17:30 – 20:30 GMT
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?
Roy Lilley will be asking the questions in what is sure to be an insightful and absorbing evening - and you can ask questions of Stephen Dorrell too.
This is certain to be a very high demand HealthChat event so please book early to secure your place. Because of the anticipated high demand, tickets cannot be refunded after January 15th.
