The UK Health Show provides a great audience and covers a diverse range of issues. The show has a string track record and best of all has a lively atmosphere!
This is the most important time for the NHS and the independent sector to work even closer together. The NHS is short on capital, capacity and capability, and the independent sector can provide this. This collaboration need to be done in a way that supports the founding principles of the NHS – free at the point of use.
One word describes the show – ‘fantastic’!
AI is the key. In the next ten years it will revolutionise patient care, but it will also disrupt existing service models and will need careful handling.
Resilience - we must be resilient. Healthcare changes frequently – it needs perseverance and resilience to succeed.
