Description

The UK Systems Society - conference

Provision of health service is facing major challenges in every country. Life expectancy has increased, people are active for longer, and citizens expect first class healthcare and for "repairs" to be done quickly to restore them to their full capacity. Some expectations are fantasy but others are justifiable, yet every day we hear or read about outcomes that give cause for concern.

In the UK we recognise that the NHS cannot continue in its present form. But the NHS is close to the heart of our citizens making major reforms difficult because of the intense passion that any discussion generates. But the NHS as a 'system' is more than 3/4 of a century old. The way that illness and old age are viewed now is different to that when the health service was created. This conference will provide a platform for ideas that might contribute to a way forward.

Papers are invited from members of any ‘discipline’ who think about a ‘situation of concern’ from a holistic perspective. Holism is used here where there is a recognition that unity of its parts are so close and intense as to be more than the sum of its parts i.e. “The whole is more than the sum of its parts”.

We would be delighted to see and hear from you at this conference.



The UK Systems Society is kindly administered by The Schumacher Institute
