BRITAIN AGAINST CANCER The new NHS - a better outcome for cancer patients?
11 December 2012 Central Hall, Westminster, London
Britain Against Cancer has become an annual event in Westminster. For over a decade it has successfully brought together patients, health professionals and policy-makers to look at the impact of public policy on cancer services and research. 2012 has been a year of transition for the NHS, with the new commissioning structures taking shape. Now the Health & Social Care Act has passed, this year’s conference will focus on what action needs to be taken to ensure that patients’ outcomes and experiences continually improve in the reformed NHS.
As ever, you will have the opportunity to hear from and pose questions to key decision makers behind the reforms and top health opinion formers, including: Andy Burnham, MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Health, Professor Sir Mike Richards, Domain One Director at the NHS Commissioning Board, Julietta Patnick, Director of the NHS Cancer Screening Programme and Alistair McLellan, editor of the Health Service Journal. Plus with six breakout sessions on a range of pressing issues, from public health to improving access to treatment, you’ll be able to hear from experts on the issues which are important to you.
