Rebooting the NHS

Global Counsel held a series of panel discussions with senior thought leaders from public policy, industry, and the wider healthcare system to explore how investment and uptake of innovation in life sciences and healthcare can both: help the NHS to tackle the challenges it faces today and support it for the future; and ensure the UK grows and maintains global leadership in life sciences.

Key themes discussed:

  • Creating a sustainable NHS with Rt Hon Patricia Hewitt, former secretary of state for Health and Social Care and Camilla Cavendish, Harvard University Senior Fellow, FT columnist, former head of Number Ten Policy Unit, Author: “Extra Time: Ten Lessons for an Ageing World”. 
  • Innovation in the NHS: what is needed to exploit life sciences to transform care today, into the 2030s and beyond? with Sir Harpal Kumar, President, BioPharma Business & Europe, GRAIL, LLC; Dr Andrew Jones, Head of Clinical Innovation, AWS; and David Brocklehurst, Head of Oncology, AstraZeneca.
  • Enabling healthcare delivery in non-traditional settings with Katherine Ward, Chief Commercial Officer, Healthy.io; Sam Patel, Executive Director, Day Lewis plc and Joanna Peller, UK Health Lead, Palantir. 
  • Wes Streeting MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Health & Social Care setting out his plans for breaking down the barriers to local adoption of innovation in the NHS to unlock the benefits of technology and data-sharing across the healthcare system.
