  1. Can you tell us a bit more about NHS Partners Network and the work you do?

NHs Partners’ Network is the Trade Association for the UK independent sector. We support the interests of NHS and Private pay patients through our offering of a diverse range of member services including: acute, diagnostics, primary care, community services, dentistry amongst several others.

 

  1. What are the key priorities for NHS Partners Network in the next 2-5 years?

 

Primarily to ensure that the independent sector is contributed positively across community and hospital care, and that safety and quality of services is at the highest possible standard.

  1. You have kindly supported the UK Health Show for the past few years? What is it about the show that makes supporting it a valuable experience?

 

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!

  1. In addition to supporting the show you also spoke this year, sharing case studies of NHS-independent sector partnerships. They provided real evidence-based successes of such partnerships in action. Do you think it is more important now for the NHS and independent sector to be working even closer together in the next few years? If so, why and if not, why not?

 

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.

  1. Overall, how did you find the UK Health Show 2018?

 

One word describes the show – ‘fantastic’!

  1. Given the number of new initiatives, policies and strategies to hit the health and care sector, in the next couple of years, what do you think will be the next big thing coming for the UK’s health and care sector?

 

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.

  1. If you could leave one piece of advice for your peers and colleagues in the sector, what would it be?

 

Resilience - we must be resilient. Healthcare changes frequently – it needs perseverance and resilience to succeed.
