So costs need to be cut – but how far is too far?

Wed 26-Sep-2018 13:30 - 14:00
Hot Seat

Healthcare across the UK is facing a nationwide funding deficit after years of what has been collectively deemed as drastic sustained underinvestment.


Driving operational efficiency to be able to better manage expenditure goes without saying. Each cog that keeps the NHS going is currently looking at ways and means of doing more for less, improving management of resources and scaling back ‘nice-to-have’ services.

However, with endless news of service rationing and the revelation of allegations that GPs have been paid incentives to reduce the number of unnecessary referrals to A&E, some questions are coming to light. Firstly, at what point do these cost savings shift from being operationally efficient to being detrimental to patient care and secondly, how far is too far?

This session will debate this in more detail and endeavour to answer these very questions.
