Representatives from across the eye care sector will converge on 16 June for Vision UK 2011 at Westminster’s QEII Conference Centre, the largest cross-sector eye health and sight loss conference.
Recently confirmed speakers include:
– Professor Sir Muir Gray CBE, Joint Lead, NHS QIPP Programme Right Care
– Richard Humphries, Senior Fellow – Social Care The King’s Fund
– Lord Howe, Under Secretary of State for Quality (with responsibility for eye care)
Key topics of the day encompass the ‘Big Society,’ commissioning changes and the recent advances in assistive technology for blind and partially sighted people. With the current financial pressures and the changes to the commissioning landscape, the conference is perfectly timed to bring the sector together to further maximise value in eye care provision. An online tool providing new commissioning guidance for eye care will also be launched on the day by Chief Executive, NHS Alliance, Michael Sobanja.
What you will learn:
– Hear about the recent innovations in eye health and sight loss services across the UK
– Find out about the new eye care commissioning guidance for GP consortia in the new NHS
– Understand the impact of the Big Society on the eye health and sight loss sector
– Discover how accessible tablets and smart phones are revolutionising the way we communicate
– Attend the most important annual gathering for the eye health and sight loss sector
– Great networking opportunities
– Delegates will also be able to share their experiences, ideas and concerns and debate the wider social and economic issues with 400 other delegates, all of whom are facing similar challenges.
The annual Vision conference is taking place during National Eye Health Week, 13-19 June.
