Understanding the NHS
Trainer: The Rt Hon Lord Andrew Lansley
This day starts by giving a comprehensive introduction to the NHS, examining the structure in more detail and looking at how money cascades down to front line services. The afternoon will focus on commissioning and spotting opportunities for your organisation within the NHS, finishing on looking at devolved administrations and how they run.
Participants will examine and discuss what the various changes within the NHS and will be encouraged to think about their existing knowledge of the system and how they might use this to improve how they communicate with the NHS.
