HealthChat with Dr Mark Porter
Dr Mark Porter is Chair of the British Medical Association, as well as being a consultant anaesthetist at the University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Trust. He has held a number of roles at the BMA including deputy chair responsible for pay and conditions (2006-9) and chair of the consultants committee from 2009-12.
As well as exploring Dr Porter’s early life and career, this HealthChat will also give Roy Lilley the opportunity to question the BMA’s approach to the H&SC Act, the 5 year forward view, vanguard services, the NHS funding challenge and the BMA’s relevence in shaping health policy.
This is sure to be a very popular event and you are urged to act now to secure your ticket. The evening starts at 5.30pm for registration and a short drinks reception before the HealthChat starts at 6pm. The HealthChat will conclude around 7.45pm before a further drinks reception.
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.
HealthChat with Sarah Wollaston MP
Dr Sarah Wollaston MP is chairperson of the House of Commons Health Select Committee. Elected to her Totnes constituency as a Conservative MP at the 2010 General Election she has enjoyed a strong rise in politics and was voted ‘Backbencher of the Year’ by The Spectator magazine in 2013 before being elected as Chairperson of the HoC HSC in 2014.
Her 20 years+ experience as an obs & gynae specialist, GP and police forensic examiner give her a personal insight and experience of life on the front line of the NHS that most politicians do not share and, of course, make her a fascinating guest for our HealthChat interview series.
Come and hear Roy Lilley in conversation with Sarah on the work of the HSC, her own views and insights into today’s NHS and the political intrigue that surrounds everything.

Its the one we’ve all been waiting for – Roy Lilley in intimate conversation with the Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt. No subject is off the agenda and you can be certain that there is plenty of discussion to be had! Book immediately to secure your seat at what is certain to be a sold out event long before February.

Monday 19th January – Kings Fund, London
HealthChat with Tim Kelsey
Supported by Sitekit, Developer of the eRedbook, a digital Personal Child Health Record
Tim Kelsey is NHS England’s National Director for Patients and Information, a post he was appointed to in July 2012. He is perhaps most recently remembered as the architect and certainly ‘front man’ for care.data, the initiative to bring big data benefits to all in exchange for access to their pseudomonised GP records. The hoo-haa that this created is ongoing, so his presence as Roy Lilley’s HealthChat interviewee in this pre-Christmas event is sure to be insightful. Previously a journalist and founder of Dr Foster, Tim Kelsey has a fascinating background and is a leading campaigner for transparency of quality in public services. He also plays a mean bass guitar! The issues around big data, open source programming, integration of systems and, of course, THE MONEY, means that this is an evening not to be missed. The evening will also feature a short demonstration of the new EMIS HealthKit technology and a surprise ingredient so BOOK NOW to ensure your place at what promises to be a fabulous event.
HealthChat with Jane Cummings
As Chief Nursing Officer England, Jane Cummings is in an immensely demanding role with huge attention focused upon her to comment on all aspects of our NHS from a nursing perspective. To quote Gail Adams of UNISON when Jane was appointed to the role in 2013; “this job is so big it can be seen from space”. What type of person do the martians see?
What is the real story behind demands for minimum staffing levels? How has the nursing profession responded in the wake of the Francis report recommendations and what should be the next steps? What happens after 2015 once the new round of public finance kicks in? Are nurses being effectively led, inspired and rewarded? What is the CNO’s take on private healthcare providers and the extent to which nursing is led by them?
They are some of our questions – what are yours? You will have the opportunity to ask them of Jane once Roy Lilley has finished his typically forthright interview.
HealthChat with Mark Britnell
Mark Britnell is a KPMG Partner and Head of Healthcare for Europe and the Middle East. In March 2006, after Nigel Crisp resigned as NHS Chief Executive, he was tipped as a likely contender for the post, but did not apply for the job, and in 2013 rumours emerged that he was again linked to the role as Sir David Nicholson stepped down. It was not to be.
Mark has a rich and varied career in healthcare management and remains as one of the most influential and insightful voices in UK and global healthcare. Roy Lilley will interview him at the Kings Fund with the usual mix of irreverence and informality, and you can expect to hear some hidden revelations, no doubt.
Huge anticipated demand means that you should book early for what is certain to be a very popular event.
HealthChat with Simon Stevens
As the new Big Beast at the head of NHS England in succession to Sir David Nicholson, Simon Stevens has a huge challenge to meet.
Roy Lilley will interview Simon at the Kings Fund on the evening of 10th September in what is a genuine ‘not to be missed’ event.
As the late, great Freddie Laker was fond of saying; “book early!”.

HealthChat – an evening with Roy Lilley & Sir Bruce Keogh
February 19th 2014, Kings Fund, London. As NHS Medical Director for England, Sir Bruce Keogh is a man whose opinion absolutely matters. nhsmanagers.net is thrilled that Sir Bruce has agreed to take part in our HealthChat series and his interview with Roy Lilley will surely be a highlight of the series. Expect to hear his candid opinions on a range of topics including clinical leadership, innovation and, of course, what comes next in the wake of his recent Keogh report into mortality rates. Roy will also, no doubt, quiz him about A&E performance as we approach the end of the winter and you can ask him your pressing questions in what will be a highly interactive and open evening. As usual, your ticket price includes a glass of wine or a soft drink at the start and end of the evening. To book go to our EventBrite page.
