The next government will have a small window of opportunity after the general election to confront the challenges facing the health and care system. So what changes are needed?
Along with the NHS Confederation and the Local Government Association, we are holding a fringe event at each of the three main parties' conferences. These seek to address the challenges facing the health and social care system and the need to transform the way care is delivered to meet the changing needs of patients, rising public expectations and continuing pressures on the public purse. Each event promises to be a lively and thought-provoking debate about the solutions needed to meet the challenges ahead.
