As the NHS takes steps towards a more integrated future, how are systems and care pathways transforming? How is change being implemented, and what does this look like in reality for local systems and populations?
Tom Clarke (Director, Mtech Access) explores all this and more with Debbie Morgan, (Director of Service Improvement and Transformation, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust).
In this #WhispersWordsofWisdom webinar, Tom and Debbie explore the reality of transforming systems and care pathways in an NHS that’s moving towards an integrated future, asking:
- What does change look like for patients and their care pathways?
- How are systems changing, and how will decisions be made and implemented?
- What does this mean for Pharma and Medtech market access and industry’s engagement with the NHS?
To understand how systems are approaching change, Debbie and Tom explore areas such as the elective recovery programme, virtual wards, and local population needs.
As Director of Service Improvement and Transformation at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Debbie leads the Trust’s improvement programme; engaging and empowering staff and patients on the journey of improvement and sustainability. She has previously held roles as Director of Commissioning and Head of Corporate Management at the Trust. Debbie originally joined the NHS in 1993 as a Clinical Cytogeneticist, before moving into NHS management in 2011. She has undertaken a wide variety of roles over the years, including commissioning and service improvement across the local health system, and has worked at director level for over 9 years.
Debbie is passionate about maximising opportunities to empowering colleagues to transform current practices, implement sustainable improvements and thereby realise patient, organisational, and system benefits.
We were delighted to welcome Debbie to the Whispers’ Words of Wisdom webinar series.
