The implementation of Choose and Book will empower patients to shape future health services and drive radical improvements. Meeting the December 2005 deadline requires one of the most fundamental changes across the NHS in decades. IT systems need to be developed and modified. Significant cultural, organisational and behavioural changes must be managed. However, with limited reports of smooth implementation to date, trusts seek the opportunity to share experiences and ideas for best practice.

Enabling the booking of patient choice
This unique conference will tackle the complexities and challenges of developing an efficient booking system to enable patient choice. Whether striving to implement the integrated NPfIT system by December, or putting in place an interim booking solution, the pressures and demands are equally challenging. Addressing the most critical issues, this conference will provide essential information to help you:
· Implement a robust IT infrastructure in readiness for roll-out.
· Prepare and engage clinicians for change.
· Select and implement a suitable booking management system to support patient choice.
· Develop an effective strategy to inform patients about choice and prevent health inequalities.
· Redesign the workforce to accommodate a new referral system.
· Harmonise Choose and Book with Practice Based Commissioning.
