IHPN Annual Summit 2021

Now in its seventh year, and a firm fixture in the health calendar, IHPN’s Annual Summit will explore the key challenges facing independent providers as the health system continues its recovery post-covid.

The event will include panel sessions on how to tackle the healthcare workforce shortage; how independent providers can meet the needs of the next generation of patients; what the next few years will hold for NHS/independent sector relationships; as well as a plenary session on what the healthcare system will look like by the next general election.
