NHS Recovery – how do we ‘build back better’?
5.6 million people are now on the waiting list for elective care in England; the highest since records began. It is more than 5 years since the 18-week referral to treatment target was last met. And the waiting list is expected to grow further, with as many as 8 million people normally expected to have been referred for treatment going unreferred during the pandemic. Longer waiting lists and waiting times are first and foremost bad news for people who need care, but they also present risks for the NHS and for government.

In our webinar, our expert panel will explore the following questions:

How does the health sector approach this monumental task? What lessons can we learn from the successful ‘war on waiting’ of the 2000s and what do we need to do differently this time? With NHS staff stretched to the limit, what can be done to ensure the workforce is there to deliver the recovery? How do we ensure we take advantages of the opportunities and ‘build back better’ for the future? And what are the risks to this government from the NHS, in particular waiting lists?
