Integrating NHS services is key to cost-cutting plans

Integrating services is key to cutting NHS costs without risking patient care, a UCL Partners and Monitor conference will hear this month.

Key themes of the conference, featuring speeches by health secretary Andrew Lansley and former RCGP chairman Professor Steve Field, will include clinical leadership, joint working and improving quality while reducing costs.

Professor David Fish, managing director at UCL Partners, said the 'Maximising Quality, Minimising Cost' conference in London on 24 January would consider how to make back-office savings.

Professor Tom Lee, a professor at Harvard University, will urge healthcare providers to unite to drive the NHS through 'this turbulent time'.

Further sessions will look at improving value for money, managing long-term conditions, and solutions for integrating primary and secondary care.
