Radisson Blu Hotel Liverpool 107 Old Hall Street Liverpool L3 9BD

Wednesday 25 July, 6-9:30pm at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Liverpool, L3 9BD.

Over its 70 year history there have been huge improvements in aspects of NHS care, but as it hits a big birthday, we will be debating how the NHS can survive and thrive for the next 70 years.

Key issues will include how to manage:

• increased demand from an ageing population with complex needs
• the rising costs of new drugs and technologies
• a workforce stretched to its limits
• a decline in performance against key targets

The debate will be chaired by BBC Health Correspondent Dominic Hughes and confirmed panellists so far include:

• Alex Fox, Chief Executive of Shared Lives Plus
• Anita Charlesworth, Director of Research and Economics at the Health Foundation
• Ben Page, Chief Executive of Ipsos MORI
• Estephanie Dunn, North West Regional Director, Royal College of Nursing

Audience participation will be encouraged, with questions and opinions from our audience helping to shape the debate.

The debate will be followed by a drinks reception and the chance to network with the panel and colleagues from across the health and care sector.

We hope to see you there.
