Diagnostics and the New NHS

About this event

How should diagnostics companies respond to the new NHS systems and policies?

As the challenges facing the NHS come under greater focus, we invite you to join us for a deep dive into diagnostics in the post-COVID NHS.

In this FREE 60-minute live event, trusted thought-leader and innovator in the field of medicines management, Shailen Rao (Managing Director of Soar Beyond), is joined by Dominic Wright, an NHS expert, to take a look at how integrated care systems (ICSs) will tackle these challenges and discuss the decisions and tactics that life sciences need to look out for.

This masterclass discusses opportunities for industry, including collaborative working and best-practice sharing.

We will cover:

  • How the NHS will interpret the changes relating to ICSs
  • What impact this will have on the industry
  • Where decisions will be made about diagnostics and how will they be implemented
  • What progress has been made regarding diagnostics in the NHS backlog plan
  • What some of the likely tactical measures are that the NHS may deploy on national, regional or local levels
