NHS Private Patient Service Development
Previously described as “informative, reassuring and challenging of how we can do better”, year-on-year this dedicated forum offers a unique opportunity for NHS Private Patient professionals to come together, share quality information, fresh news and inspiring ideas.
With the development of Private Patient Services nationally across the NHS, it is important that your operational, financial and policy issues are resolved. This useful networking forum offers an insight into how other projects and costing models are delivering effective Private Patient services in the NHS.
2019 will focus on improving the business of NHS Private Patient Services and will feature the following themes:
- Achieving quality data: meeting CMA legal obligations and working together with PHIN
- Challenging culture and capacity: hearing first hand from the Chief Executive, Commercial Finance Director and Medical Director from Derby
- Improving income and generating savings: Private Patient Services share their strategies
- Negotiating contracts with Private Insurance Companies: round table meetings with four of the leading PMIs
- Delivering effective costing models: financial management and true costing in practice
- The future of PPUs in the NHS: next steps in funding, growth and PPU ‘chains’
Whether you have an established unit or you don’t have any private facilities and are in the early stages of setting up your PPU, you are all challenged with having a Private Patient Service within an NHS environment. This conference will bring you together with:
- Private Patient Managers, Overseas Visitors Managers and General Managers
- Business Development and Operations, Performance and Planning Leads
- Commercial, Marketing and Communication Managers
- Financial Planning, Contracts, Accounts and Finance Leads
- Clinical Leads, Consultants and Senior Nurses
