About this event

Lord Carter’s Review, NHS five year forward view and our Better value in the NHS report all identify significant opportunities for the NHS to get better value from its budget. Delegates joined us at this event to hear how leading organisations and teams are already making change happen, and to gain a vital insight into some of the methods being used to improve services at the front line of the NHS.

We heard from innovative examples where there have been demonstrable improvements in the quality of care delivered, as well as reductions in cost, as a result of changes made by clinical teams.
