Meeting the challenges of working in a Foundation environment

NHS Foundation Trusts are at the cutting edge of the Government’s commitment to decentralisation. Free from day to day direction from Whitehall, local managers and staff will have the freedom to innovate and develop services tailored to the needs of their local communities. These changes have significant impact on the local health economies. How do you meet these challenges?

Building robust working relationships within the health economy

Under new service contracts, PCTs and NHS Foundation Trusts are tightly bound together in a legal framework which demands cooperation. In order to work within this framework PCTs and NHS Foundation Trusts must build a strong commissioner-provider relationship, agreeing on the type and level of services needed to meet the local community’s needs. This practical one-day conference will address the key issues and challenges associated with working with Foundation Trusts. You will have the opportunity to hear case studies from organisations that have worked in a Foundation environment for the past few months, the reality of working with the new system reforms and the lessons learned to date.
