Conferences & Events
HealthChat with Dame Julie Mellor
Dame Julie Mellor DBE is the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman, a post to which she was appointed in 2012. Her role is to investigate complaints that individuals have been treated unfairly or have received poor service from government departments and other public organisations and the NHS in England. Based on this, we felt that she would be the perfect guest as our April HealthChat interviewee.
Dame Julie was formerly a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers and a non executive board member of both the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and of the Green Alliance. She was chair of the Equal Opportunities Commission between 1999 and 2005 and was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for services to equal opportunities.
Her perspective on the Health Service in England will be an enthralling one and no doubt Roy Lilley will delve into the early career and the motivations that brought her into her current high profile position.
Please book early for what will be an unmissable insight. The evening starts at 5.30pm with a short drinks reception before the HealthChat starts at 6pm. There will be an audience Q&A before a final drinks reception, with the evening expected to finish around 8pm.
