Guest of Honour
Professor Bee Wee, National Clinical Director, End of Life Care, NHS England
 
Delegates will consider next steps for improving the quality of palliative care services, including widening choice and reducing variation in access. It takes place in light of the Department of Health’s recent commitments to further personalisation of care, greater accessibility for all sections of the population, and to developing innovation in delivery, following the findings of the independent review carried out by the Choice in End of Life Care Programme Board in 2015.

Attendees will also consider the future of regulation in the context of the CQC’s thematic review on inequalities in end of life care, published in May 2016. Further sessions look at the impact on the provision of palliative care of commissioning new models of care and Sustainability and Transformation Plans - and at key issues relating to skills, education and workforce development, with new guidance published by the GMC this year. We also expect discussion on forthcoming priorities for paediatric, palliative and end of life services as NICE finalises its guidelines in this area.
