Speaker: Nigel Edwards, CEO, Nuffield Trust
We can’t go on like this, to coin a phrase. The NHS faces unprecedented financial and operational challenges as a result of rising demand for services and constrained resources. NHS providers posted a record deficit in 2015/16, general practice is in crisis and mental health and community services are under huge pressure. Performance is suffering, with targets for waiting times being missed. Something has to change – what?
Nigel Edwards has a wealth of experience in health and social care. Prior to becoming chief executive at the Nuffield Trust in 2014, he was an expert advisor with KPMG's Global Centre of Excellence for Health and Life Sciences, and a senior fellow at The King's Fund. He was Policy Director of the NHS Confederation for 11 years and was Director of the London Health Economics Consortium at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, where he remains an honorary visiting professor. He is a well-known media commentator, often in the spotlight debating key policy issues. Any member with interests relating to NHS issues will want to hear his views.
