Event summary

The South West Clinical Networks will be holding it’s annual conference on Thursday 7 February at the Sandy Park Conference Centre in Exeter.

The programme will focus on influencing the NHS 10 Year Plan through Innovation and Technology

It will provide all participants with the opportunity to work with them to discuss new models of care and the way their services will be delivered in the future.

This year our conference focusses on innovation and personalised medicine and the role they will play to promote health in the 10 Year Plan. Dr John McGrath, Deputy Director, South West Genomic Medicine Centre, will lead us through the 100,000 Genomes Project and Dr David Llewellyn, Alan Turing Institute Fellow at the University of Exeter Medical School, will share his investigations into how machine learning and artificial intelligence can be applied to improve diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Leanne Summers, the Digital Strategy Delivery Lead for NHS England will discuss the new digital road map as part of national transformation and Mark Cooke, Director of Commissioning for NHS England – South West will talk about the new NHS 10 Year Plan and what it means to the region. We will also welcome our final guest speaker Stuart Monk from the South West Academic Health Science Network, who will talk about how we collaborate as partners across the South West and deliver innovation in healthcare.

The plenary will be followed by a marketplace which will showcase much of your work and provide an opportunity for us to promote the work that we have been supporting you with: diabetes prevention, the introduction of the FIT test so as to enable earlier diagnosis of bowel cancer which, if diagnosed early, has a 90% chance of recovery, the Better Births Programme, and the progress on parity for mental health patients. Members of our Senate Citizens’ Assembly, a unique platform in the South for participation and patients’ voice in the large scale changes that involve several STPs, will also be at our marketplace and will be on hand to offer ideas on ways to engage with the public.

This event will be one of the earliest opportunities for you to engage with us on the clinical improvement programmes which have been proposed in the 10 Year Plan and will offer some excellent opportunities for you to network with colleagues, bring to life STP borders and, hopefully, to leave equipped with some of the innovations which will help your own clinical priorities.

Join us from 9.30am to network with colleagues from across the South West, for a 10am start.
