Lansley and US experts to advise GPs on value for money

Health secretary Andrew Lansley is to speak at a major conference in January advising GPs how to increase quality while driving down costs.

The London event will bring together expert speakers from the USA and UK with hands-on experience of how senior clinicians can create value for money in healthcare systems.

The conference is being organised by UCL Partners – a group of world-class London hospitals and medical research centres – and the foundation trust regulator Monitor, with GP as the official media partner.

Harvard Business School's Professor Michael Porter and Professor Tom Lee of Harvard Partners in Boston, will share their expertise on driving value in health systems, where value is defined as best outcomes per pound spent.

Called ‘Maximising Quality, Minimising Cost’, the one-day event will enable senior clinicians to learn from key specialists in the field, share best practice, and will facilitate discussion and debate on implementation at pace and scale.

UK speakers will include former RCGP chairman Professor Steve Field and Dr Martin Marshall, clinical director of The Health Foundation, as well as more than 20 senior clinicians from the NHS.

The afternoon schedule will include a series of master classes on ‘how to put in place the enablers for success’.

GPs will be able to take advantage of a nominal delegate fee of £100 plus VAT for NHS staff.

The event takes place on 24 January in Blackfriars, London. Book your place now.

You can also complete our exclusive survey on how GPs can create value for money in the NHS, with a chance to win one of ten free tickets to the conference. Closing date 4 January.
