During this session, Anita Charlesworth, Chief Economist at The Health Foundation and Honorary Professor at the University of Birmingham, will share her analysis of the Autumn Budget and set out what it means for health and social care funding and delivery, public services and the economy more generally.  There will be ample time for questions and debate among the participants in the briefing session.

Anita has previously worked as Director of Public Spending at the Treasury and as Chief Economist at the Nuffield Trust.  She is a well-known commentator on health and social care finances and reform, and recently acted as special advisor to the House of Lords Select Committee on the Long Term Sustainability of the NHS.  As all eyes are will be on the impending settlement for health and social care, Anita is uniquely placed to provide expert briefing and analysis. 

There will also be contributions from Margaret Ashton-Gray, Head of Finance for Social Care at Birmingham City Council, as well as a healthcare finance representative (tbc). The event will be chaired by Professor Judith Smith, Director of HSMC. 

The briefing will take place under the Chatham House rule, and is aimed primarily at Chief Executives, Chairs and Finance Directors of NHS/Foundation Trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups, and Local Authorities.

Tea/coffee and sandwiches will be available from 4.30 pm with a scheduled 7pm finish.

With only 40 places available, we advise booking early.
