Delivering Improved Efficiency: “The Perfect Ward”
Mark Jarman-Howe, Programme director, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Amidst the latest round of NHS reconfiguration budgetary constraints remain a pressing issue. With the NHS budget coming under increasing strain in the foreseeable future, how can we deliver better patient outcomes and better service under the constraints of falling budgets? Mark Jarman-Howe shares how Cambridge University Hospitals have delivered more for less throughout the Trust by implementing the 'Effective Workforce Programme’.
1030 – 1045

1045 – 1115

Turnaround in the NHS
Andrew Murphy, Director, Kingsgate Interim Management

Despite being partially shielded from the full austerity targets, the financial challenge for the NHS remains significant, particularly given the structural change agenda. Andrew Murphy outlines a no-nonsense, delivery focused approach that can apply discipline to financial turnaround in the NHS.

New Look Commissioning: How GP Commissioning Will Change the NHS
Richard Jenkins, Primary Care Team, NHS Institute for Innovation & Improvement and General Practitioner, Lichfield

How will GPs manage to deliver high standards of patient care whilst taking on their new role as budget holders for the NHS? Do GPs have the necessary skills and how can they acquire them quickly? What will happen to PCTs and SHAs? Is GP Commissioning simply GP Fundholding revisited, or will it be different this time? With experience in CSL - giving support to PCTs, Richard Jenkins, who is also a practicing GP in Lichfield, will give his view of the changes being brought about by the new government.

Q&A with the panel of Speakers



Workshop 1

Reducing Length of Stay
Dr Jess Boyer, Chief Medical Officer, RealTime Health

It is estimated that each trust in the UK could save several million pounds a year, just by successfully reducing the unnecessary length of stay. Jess Boyer brings 25 years of experience of doing just that in the USA. He will demonstrate, using live examples, how ALOS can be reduced by between 10% and 20% in a year.

Workshop 2

The Role of the Non-Executive Director
Dr Carolyne Haynes, Former Non-Exec, St Richards, Chichester

The increasing importance of the Non-Exec in the governance of NHS trusts makes this role increasingly complex. Dr Carolyne Haynes will bring her several years of experience as a Non-Exec to this workshop, which is designed specifically to help Non-Execs understand how they can improve patient care and maintain quality and governance.

Workshop 3

Creating Clinical Leaders Using the CAREFUL Approach
Dr D J Brown, Emergency Physician, Homerton Hospital

Clinical leadership is becoming more important to the delivery of quality of care and governance and the NHS is now putting more and more emphasis on clinicians to deliver improvements. Dr Brown explores how clinicians can make the grade by approaching change management in a simple and systematic way.

Workshop 4

Facing up to Practice Based Commissioning
Dr Richard Jenkings, Institute for Innovation and Improvement

The change from PCT driven to GP-driven commissioning is possibly the biggest change that the NHS has seen for decades. Are GPs ready for this challenge? Where are the consortia going to find the expertise? What skills and leadership will they need? How will patient care and governance be maintained. Dr Jenkins will explore the practicalities of the changes that GPs and providers will face.
