PwC’s bespoke programme for NHS NEDs delivers high value and high impact events free of cost and tailored to support the demands placed upon NEDs in the health sector
Following the continued success of our programme specifically designed to meet the needs of Non-Executive Directors in the NHS, we are delighted to launch the next round of events. They will run from September until April next year. We are continuing to draw on the best minds within the healthcare sector as well as using the expertise we have developed from our work with key clients across the NHS. The forums give NEDs a unique opportunity to debate and discuss with their peers.
"Great programme, thank you for letting us access it."
"A great programme which stimulates and re energises me - 3 hours well spent!"
NEDs have an increasingly significant role in ensuring they are properly exercising their responsibilities in relation to governance and risk. We aim to support NEDs through this and in all of these roles through our programme of events. We offer expert knowledge and real life experience from within and without the sector and, as before, this new programme will include a balance of macro and micro level topics for the whole Board, as well as a specific workshop for the Audit Committee.

As we leave behind 70 years of paternalism and move towards greater patient choice, not least embracing the app revolution, this session asks how is all of this shifting the traditional power dynamics in the NHS. We will consider how these changes are affecting society as a whole and what this means for health organisations. Issues under consideration include how boards might be held to account, what should the NHS expect in return from the patients, how will the doctor patient relationships change and how will this impact overall governance.
We will propose strategies to support board members to embrace the opportunities of this shift in power and will be joined by Alan Milburn, former Secretary of State for Health, Denise Hampson, Ex Global Behavioural Economist – LuLuLemon and Advisor to the Ministry of Justice and David Morris, PwC Public Sector Health Leader.

Nye Bevan believed that through the development of illness prevention strategies and good health promotion the NHS would do itself out of business within years of its establishment. But 71 years on demand has grown at a steady 4% per annum each year. We now face the prospect of demand for care exceeding available resources for the second consecutive decade. In this session we will set out why this is not sustainable for the system and how we, and boards in particular, should increase our focus on illness prevention.
We will be joined by Duncan Selbie, CEO Public Health England, Professor Kate Arden, Director of Public Health and Wigan Council, PwC Director.

The NHS Long Term Plan sets out a clear reorientation of emphasis and resources away from hospital and physical health care to a new world of holistic community based and primary care directed services. There is much for the system to do as patients are still experiencing problems in A and E, delayed discharges and a lack of acute care beds. We will discuss how organisations can move more quickly into place based working and how PCNs, community and mental health services can work alongside hospitals to make this a reality.
Guest panelists will include Susan Sinclair CEO at AT Medics, Dominic Hardy, Director of Primary Care and System Transformation at NHS England and NHS Improvement, Yvonne Mowlds PwC Partner and Nancy Park, PwC Partner.

National policy on ageing and social care is likely to focus on funding levels and yet the major question we face as a nation is how can we manage the care of working age and older adults with rising social needs. For many people with these problems, our services are fragmented, under funded and difficult to access. For many organisations, delivery of these services highlights the same problems. In this session we will consider the need for social care transformation and its implications for the NHS in general and boards specifically. What should NHS Boards be doing on the ground about care, ageing and service integration?
Joining us for this discussion will be Rosamond Roughton, Director for Care and Transformation, Department for Health and Social Care, Dr Carolyn Wilkins, CEO Oldham Council and Accountable Officer, NHS Oldham CCG and Jonathan House, PwC Partner.

The Health Audit Committee Network is an extension of the NHS NED programme but with a greater focus on the role of this important committee. These events will help NEDs ensure they are up to date with the latest developments so they can shape the governance of their own organisations in the face of an ever changing health landscape. The topics we will cover over the course of the year will include:
Heather Ancient – Partner, PwC
"Very thought provoking, its important as a NED to have "time out" to discuss the longer term issues facing the NHS."
