IHPN welcomes Amanda Pritchard to Spring member event
IHPN were delighted to hold our Spring Event 2022 in April where over 100 of our members were joined by guest speaker, NHS England CEO, Amanda Pritchard. During the session Amanda paid tribute to all the hard work of those in the independent sector in supporting the NHS throughout the pandemic.
Looking ahead, Amanda also reinforced the key role that independent healthcare providers will play as part of the healthcare system’s recovery, including in reducing the NHS backlog; developing new virtual wards; as well as supporting hospital discharge and delivering high quality care in the community.
While the Secretary of State unfortunately had to pull out of the event at the last minute due to parliamentary business, he did send a video message where he thanked independent providers for helping “keep the country going” during the pandemic, and made clear that the sector is a “pivotal part” of his plans for the future of healthcare.
