Where next for NHS pay?

Wednesday 15 June, 15.15 in Theatre 3 - 3A

  • Prof James Buchan, Senior Visiting Fellow, the Health Foundation
  • Sara Gorton, Head of Health, UNISON
  • Dr Habib Naqvi MBE, Director, NHS Race and Health Observatory

This session, hosted by the Health Foundation, will explore the impact of the current pay determination system for NHS and social care staff.

Hear from Professor James Buchan, Senior Fellow from the Health Foundation’s REAL Centre, who will share insights from new analysis which will put into context how funding constraints, inflation and the cost of living crisis may impact NHS pay, and its implications for the stability of the future workforce.

We will follow that with an interactive session, supported by other expert speakers, holding an active discussion to explore the implications of this for recruitment and retention approaches across the health and care sector, and the role of pay as part of future workforce strategies.

Beyond hospitals: how do we truly transform health care?

Thursday 16 June, 14.30 in The Auditorium (main stage)

  • Jennifer Dixon CBE, Chief Executive, the Health Foundation
  • Matthew Winn, Director Community Health - NHS England and NHS Improvement - NHS England and NHS Improvement
  • Dan Harman, Consultant Community Geriatrician - City Health Care Partnership CIC

This is a forward-looking session taking a long-term view on trends and likely developments in society, the economy, and health and care. This chaired panel discussion will look at some of the long-term trends that will impact the NHS and how we might want to prepare, using three key discussion areas:

  • Looking back to look forward: what shifts in the demographics and attitudes of the people the NHS serves that means it may be time to adapt its population profile?
  • Interaction between the person and the service: how is the relationship between the health and care system and populations developing? How have expectations and interactions changed over time and what does this mean for future of care?
  • Practical opportunities and solutions: based on the shifts discussed, what are the opportunities and benefits of greater integration and moving service access closer to home that meet the new population profile and how they interact with health care?
