Explore strategies for ensuring the financial health of your organisation at HSJ’s topical conference. With the introduction of PbR, controlling NHS spend has become the responsibility of PCTs and commissioning practices. Not only must PCTs ensure that their financial controls are as robust as possible, but they must also strive to reduce demand for expensive acute services.

As a delegate to this conference you will:

- Receive the latest in-depth assessment on the strengths and weaknesses of PCT finances
- Hear the results of a nationwide survey of demand management strategies
- Learn how to select best practice examples to replicate in your organisation

This conference will provide practical and tested solutions for:

- Proactively monitoring and managing spend under PbR
- Reducing inappropriate acute admissions and emergency admissions
- Developing cheaper appropriate alternatives in primary care
- Unlocking the potential of practice-based commissioning to reduce costs

The conference features an interactive panel discussion to cover a range of financial concerns. Expert panellists will discuss the issues. Questions and comments are encouraged from the audience, giving you the chance to voice your concerns and share your ideas for success.
