Description

Demand and cost pressures mean the NHS needs to redesign the way in which services are provided, with the Long Term Plan encouraging greater integration across health and social care. Many service redesign initiatives and innovations are being piloted and rolled out across the UK. In making a case for service redesign, it is crucial that NHS providers and commissioners understand the economic impact of the changes that are proposed.

This one-day course aims to help NHS and social care commissioners and providers, and private sector organisations, who need to understand how to make an economic case for change to the NHS. The training day will provide an understanding of the NHS economic context along with an introduction to health economics and business cases.

We ask that you bring your own laptops to this course. If you do not have access to a laptop, please contact Niki (Training Course Administrator).
