Sir David Nicholson, Chief Executive of the NHS commented:
"There are lots of really powerful examples around things we can do to improve quality while improving productivity"
Chair, Sir Muir Gray, Co-Director, NHS QIPP Programme, Right Care Workstream, Department of Health commented on the June 2012 conference stating:
"Revolutionary things are happening in the NHS by individuals, not by bureaucracy. This QIPP Awards & Conference is a celebration of individuals"
LinkGov Health & Care Conference is now in its fourth successful year, will look beyond the current debates around structures and reforms and focus on why and how to improve the everyday business of delivering health and social care for the next generation of providers, partners and patients.
LinkGov recognise the efficient and effective governance arrangements that demonstrate absolute clarity about responsibility and accountability for the current PCT and SHA clusters.
We support the direction of travel for reform, in particular the effective management of the transition, we support CCGs and Local Authorities to begin establishing the local relationships that will, subject to legislation, be the bedrock of the new NHS commissioning system.
Within this context, we will explore and debate the new architecture, that is and needs to continue to be, constructed for the Next Generation of Health and Social Care Systems and Service.
The NHS is going through the largest reorganisation since its inception. The government’s reforms have significant potential to advance and improve the whole system, yet they are to be implemented against a milieu of financial challenges.
Within this framework, it is critical that we protect the improvements that have been made by previous structures and processes and look beyond current debate about reconfiguration and reforms, to focus on how to improve the everyday business of delivering health and social care - by investing wisely today, in order to build a truly revolutionary next generation health and care system.
We will debate how to build a health and social care system for the future that delivers services which meet the expectations of today’s and tomorrow’s patients, are safe, high quality and value-for-money. The conference will support boards, senior leaders and managers, policy-makers and practitioners in health and social care to drive improvements in innovative outcomes and increased quality and safety through this arduous period. The programme includes cutting edge innovations, value based solutions and treatments and will showcase the latest advances in technology and demonstrate where lifesciences intertwines with informatics; integrated care programmes; and care pathways demonstrating whole system step changes.
The purpose of this event is to provide delegates with a clearer understanding of how the new systems will function in 2013 and beyond. The objective of the programme and showcases will be to consider the framework for the future along with the strategies and practical concepts and innovations in service delivery, that can enable the next generation health and care service to be better integrated and personal, using smart technologies and smarter ways of working.
The event is National and in its fourth year.
This is a critical time in our NHS, there are some examples of fantastic progress, while others show real struggle. The winners are being brought together to reward, recognise and to give colleagues an opportunity to re-engage to stimulate the QIPP agenda.
We continue to receive an exceptional level of entries this year. We hope and believe the Shared Learning Award winners can be an inspiration to light the way ahead.
Public sector organisations applying for the Shared Learning Award : The QIPP Challenge – “Re-engaging Leaders” must demonstrate relevant work plans and activity, either implemented or planned, within the following themes:

At LinkGov we recognise and appreciate that no organisations, including our own events, are a silver bullet. Measuring and gaining return on investment becomes increasingly difficult to quantify, yet ever more important.
More important than ever before, is the meaningful dialogue that takes place and the relationships that are built and strengthened both prior and post such event days, at a high level within a strategic context – that is precisely what we uniquely do, we help to build senior level, mutually beneficial and mutually reliable, interdependent relationships on behalf of our key stakeholder partners involved in the conference, with their key target accounts across government and industry as well as other sectors.
It is fair to say that even the achievement of even one single relationship with one of your target accounts, will demonstrate a life time of return on investment into this event as a stakeholder partner.
While the majority of organisations, particularly blue chip, have a great quantity of relationships with quality outcomes, the majority of LinkGov clients, who in the main are also best of breed brands, tell us without exception that one can only benefit from having more and stronger relationships, driven strategically at a senior level with a helicopter view.
We look forward to helping build more meaningful and lasting relationships because Connecting Leaders is what we do best.

Our colleagues across the health and care landscape will be gathering once again, this time
in Manchester, 28 June 2012, to share and learn in detail, about national QIPP Delivery Plans and
additional strategic approaches, that have been continually refined over the past months.
In part, this has been driven by the highly detailed reporting required by the Strategic Health Authority and the ongoing reforms. The Delivery Plans have to contain detailed milestone plans and key performance indicators for each of the identified projects. Details of projects within the individual programmes, the targets, the leads and the challenges will all be debated and dissected on the day.
While it’s true QIPP and Reforms raise many a tense eyebrow in Board Rooms, it is clear from the continuous ongoing high-level discussions we have with our colleagues, love it or loathe it, collectively we have to achieve it. But it cannot be achieved without the aid of stakeholder partners from all sectors – thus demonstrating the need for greater transparent dialogue with budget holders and decision makers whose role it is, to hold a holistic view and see without exception, the great need and benefit of having true interdependent strategic partnerships and collaborative leadership, to achieve the necessary successful outcomes in the timescales required.
The conversation and language needs to change from Spend to Investment, avoiding quick fixes and focusing on long term strategic mutual gains. As such we are viewing a paradigm shift in the way these said Leaders are engaging and collaborating with stakeholders, much earlier on in the process.
There are still many out there who view many industry and other sector Leaders, with previous, outdated spectacles. It’s clear that all sectors have much to offer the New health sector that can assist and integrate with health and care organisations QIPP Delivery and Work Plans and Strategic Initiatives.
The full details of the conference, including the successful outcomes the previous three years have achieved, can be viewed below.
We have a variety of sponsorship packages available for our bi -annual conference,
plus opportunities to exhibit and place material into the delegate packs.
The significant rate of both our returning delegates and commercial partners each year is testimony that LinkGov provide absolutely best practice, innovative thinking and quality debate.
Unlike large sponsorship-driven exhibitions run by publishers and events companies, LinkGov build as many opportunities as possible for stakeholder partners sponsoring or exhibiting at the event to integrate within the actual programme on the day.
In addition to the event, where we add true value over and above other events is our single minded, unique focus, on relationship building, pre and post these events, predominantly at board level.
By assisting our partners, both senior delegates and commercial partners, to develop more and stronger relationships both pre and post the events through our targeted individualised business diplomatic service programmes, we ensure the highest return on investment in terms of both monetary and time investments, by connecting Leaders to develop relationships that are meaningful, mutually beneficial and lasting.
“Excellent calibre of speakers and delegates, second to none”.
Jim Easton, Director of Improvement and Transformation, NHS Commissioning Board
“I was very impressed with the conference – speakers in the main plenary session shared some great insight into the need for the whole of the NHS to embrace all 4 elements of QIPP; the breakout study sessions and QIPP workshops presented some great examples of innovative ways of working that are delivering productivity gains at the same time as improving patient care”.
Jonathan Mason, National Clinical Director for Primary Care and Community Pharmacy, Department of Health
“It was of great value adding knowledge and insight”.
Margaret Williams, Assistant Director of Nursing, NHS NorthWest
