Event Details

This seminar asks, “Is the NHS in crisis?”  How is the NHS coping with increased demand and pressures to deliver excellence, in a context of increasingly limited resources and ongoing structural change?  Is our current model of healthcare sustainable in the current political climate?  What are the alternatives? 

This seminar will benefit from a panel of speakers involved in service delivery and planning from a range of backgrounds who will each put forward their perspective.  The audience will then have the opportunity to put questions to the panel in a Question Time style debate.  We aim to provide the audience with up-to-date information and an improved understanding of the challenges our healthcare system faces, to enable them to go on to become skilled advocates and effective leaders in the future

This seminar is part of the Global Health Advocacy series, held by the Alma Mata global health network and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. Doors will open at 5.40pm.

Speakers include:  

  • Prof. Neena Modi, President of RCPCH and Professor of neonatal medicine, Imperial College London
  • Dr. Jeeves Wijesuriya, Chair of BMA Junior Doctors Committee
  • Dr. Ben White, Bring Back The NHS/Justice4 Health
