Published: 10/09/2011

The Nuffield Trust’s third Annual Health Strategy Summit came at a critical time in the implementation of the NHS reforms outlined in the White Paper, Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS, and the Health and Social Care Bill.

This video of the Summit highlights provides an overview of the key themes which provided the focus for discussions on the day, including the NHS reform agenda, the challenges facing clinical commissioners, the development of competition policy, the potential for new technologies and information systems, and how to unleash dynamism in health care to improve efficiency.

The video includes contributions from: Rt Hon Andrew Lansley CBE MP, Secretary of State for Health; The Guardian’s Polly Toynbee; Rt Hon Stephen Dorrell MP, Health Select Committee; and Geoff Mulgan from The Young Foundation.

In 2012 the Health Policy Summit will provide an opportunity to hear and question the latest evidence and analysis on finance and efficiency, global innovation, integrated care, and the management of financial risk.
