The NHS is undergoing one of the most significant periods of change in its history. With SHAs and PCTs set to go within the next three years, commissioning to be put in the hands of GP consortia and many arm’s length bodies being abolished, the shape of the NHS is certain to be very different in the coming years.

But with all these changes ahead, where will the power in the NHS lie in 2011? Who will the decision makers be and who will be influencing where they focus their attention?

This HSJ online seminar will bring together key speakers to debate these questions. This free to view live 45 minute discussion gives you the chance to pose your questions to our panel of experts and help shape the debate.


  • Pam Garside, Fellow in Health Management, Judge Business School, Cambridge University
  • Professor Steve Field, Chair of the Council, Royal College of General Practitioners
  • Alpesh Patel, Partner and Head of Healthcare Practice, Ernst & Young
  • Frank McKenna, Director of NHS and Healthcare, Harvey Nash

The seminar will also open up a debate about who should be included in this year’s HSJ 100, the annual list of the top individuals in NHS management, policy and practice to be published in HSJ in November.

This informative discussion is essential viewing for all those who want to be part of the future of the NHS. Understanding where and with whom the power and influence lie could be vital to your career.
