Events: Annual Lecture and Dinner
Our invitation-only annual lectures are held in the winter to reflect on the year and to look ahead.
NCF Annual Lecture 2016
NCF's 13th Annual Lecture and dinner took place on 30 November at Church House Conference Centre.
Our thanks to Samantha Jones, Director – New Care Models Programme, NHS England for presenting a thought provoking presentation:
'Delivering the five year forward view: what the new care models mean for the future of health and care services'
Samantha started her NHS career as an adult and paediatric nurse and was a national management trainee. Having worked in a variety of operational management roles, and in the national clinical governance support team, she became the Chief Executive of Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust.
Following this, Samantha worked in the independent sector before she was appointed Chief Executive of West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust in February 2013.
In 2014, Samantha was named as the Health Service Journal’s (HSJ) Chief Executive of the Year, and West Hertfordshire’s ‘Onion’ was highly commended in the patient safety category of the same awards. ‘Onion’ was an initiative which focused on supporting staff to be open and transparent about concerns and empowered them to help address them.
In January 2015, Samantha was appointed by NHS England as Director – New Care Models Programme and is leading on the implementation of the new care models outlined in the NHS Five Year Forward View. This includes launching 50 vanguards which are taking the lead on the developing new care models which will act as the blueprints for the NHS.
NCF Annual Lecture 2015
Alastair Burt MP, Minister of State for Community and Social Care, presented the 12th NCF Annual Lecture on Wednesday 2 December.
Given the focus that there has been on implementation of the Care Act this year, the expectation of closer integration of care and health and significant changes to regulation and inspection the lecture offered a timely opportunity to share aspirations for the sector as providers and commissioners get ready for the second stage of the Care Act. The venue for the 2015 Annual Lecture was the Royal College of Surgeons.
