President’s Speaker Series

On November 13, join a discussion about building a new healthcare service model for the 21st century at the President’s Speaker Series.

Keynote Speaker: Tim Gardner, Senior Policy Fellow, The Health Foundation (United Kingdom)

Topic: A new service model for the 21st century

As it stands, the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) has high levels of patient satisfaction, is improving health outcomes, and is very efficient overall. But, like Alberta Health Services, the NHS still faces challenges and looks for new and better ways to meet the needs of patients.

Earlier this year, the NHS in England published a new Long Term Plan for redesigning their health system to make sure it works in the best way possible, so people can get help more easily when they need it, and close to where they live.

In his presentation, Senior Policy Fellow Tim Gardner will discuss the NHS Long Term Plan, how the NHS will implement it, and what they need to do to support their staff while putting changes into practice.
