Revitalising private healthcare for the 21st century

The private healthcare sector is under pressure. Falling demand for private medical insurance, increased regulation, pressure on NHS funding, … It’s time to discuss:

  • How can we extend the benefits of private healthcare to a wider public?
  • What does the 21st century consumer of private healthcare really want?
  • Can we deliver more… for less?
  • What benefits will technology bring?
  • Is the NHS… friend or foe?
  • What can we learn from other countries?
