The NHS is going through systemic change as Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) evolve into Accountable Care Systems (ACSs) and begin to work at a much larger scale to serve whole health economies.

For suppliers to the NHS this means a long-term reduction in the number of providers and commissioners meaning fewer points of sale. The impact of these changes for suppliers is that at every level of the NHS there will be new configurations of buyers and providers.

This will ultimately mean the NHS may be less fragmented and easier to navigate than before but competition between suppliers will intensify.

As STPs and ACSs develop further it is imperative your business gains a competitive edge by acquiring a comprehensive understanding of the new NHS landscape.

Join Wilmington Healthcare’s expert team of thought leaders for this essential event that will provide you with the knowledge to navigate the new NHS. Their rich insight will be complimented by real world case studies from national and local NHS leaders who are spearheading these transformational changes.

The event is supported by HSJ, the UK’s leading intelligence service for healthcare leaders.
