Keynote Speaker: Lord Philip Hunt

Despite the Conservative’s pledge in 2010 for `no more top-down re-organisations’, the Coalition reforms (2010-2015) have been described as a re-organisation you can see from space.’ These reforms have precipitated clinically-led commissioning, management cuts, and further provider competition, among others. Combined with demographic change, service developments and financial pressures, the past 5 years have been dramatic as any in the NHS history. This symposium will explore the implementation and emerging impact of these reforms, and consider future health policy under the new government.

We invite abstracts for presentations covering theoretical and empirical aspects of these reforms. Abstracts from early career researchers will be especially welcome.

  • Each presentation will last 20 minutes, with ample time for discussion
  • The deadline for abstracts: Friday 20 February
  • Selected presenters will be notified in early March

Cost: £40 (per person, including lunch)
