The NHS Health Check Leadership Forum

On Wednesday 12th June 2013, London’s Excel centre will be playing host to this year’s Commissioning Show. With keynote speakers that include the Minister for Care and Support, the Chair of NHS England, and the Shadow Health Secretary, the event is set to attract an audience keen to stay abreast of current developments in health.
In conjunction with the Commissioning Show, the NHS Health Check Leadership Forum will be staged for those individuals specifically involved in the commissioning and coordination of the NHS Health Checks.
The Leadership Forum – made up of a panel and a select audience – will provide the only event specific to the NHS Health Checks at this year’s show. As such, the platform it offers will be catering for all and any discussion associated with the challenges and benefits currently facing those deploying population-based cardiovascular screening programmes.
Panel members involved in innovative service delivery will talking about their experiences at the sharp end. Others concerned with researching the evidence base and developing systems to get data into GP practices will be sharing their findings.
The panel will be made up of the following individuals:
Andy Cowper: Comment Editor at Health Service Journal, Editor of Health Policy Insight and Event Chair and programmer for Wellards. Andy will chair the session
Dr. Michael Soljak: As a Clinical Research Fellow at Imperial College London, Dr. Soljak is part of the research team evaluating the NHS Health Check programme. With work published in both the British Medical Journal and the Journal of Public Health, Dr. Soljak is in an ideal position to respond to questions concerning the emerging NHS Health Check evidence base.
Jayne Herring: As a member of the Directorate of Public Health in the North East, Jayne oversees the management of public health contracts in North Tees. Having been commissioning population based CVD screening since before the NHS Health Check programme came into being, Jayne has had to recognise and overcome many challenges. She’ll be sharing this experience in innovative public health provision.
Jacqui Deakin: As Durham’s Quality and Health Improvement Lead, Jacqui’s knowledge covers the spectrum of roles and responsibilities associated with the NHS Health Checks. From getting different providers to ensure a consistent delivery, to engaging with communities and motivating providers to perform, Jacqui will be talking about the practical considerations of the programme.
Julie Evason: Managing Director at Health Diagnostics. For 30 years Julie has been developing health screening solutions and has supported the rollout of NHS Health Checks projects across 25 PCTs. Latest developments include coordinating the return of granular data to any clinical system.
Due to the specialist topics under discussion, attendance at the event is via invite only. If you’re you’d like to attend, please send your declaration of interest to info@healthdiagnostics.co.uk. Include your name, organisation and job role.
The NHS Health Check Leadership Forum will take place at a venue on the doorstep of London’s Excel on the 12th June @ 12.30.
