Posted 23 March 2017

The VHA is set to host a study tour of the UK in July 2017. The UK public health system shares similarities to Victoria's system under going reform, consequently, it is an ideal destination.

·     NHS – understanding the role of the NHS and the funding models for hospitals and community health

·     The Kings Fund – learn about research they've undertaking

·     A large hospital

·     A community centre

·     The London ambulance service

·     A clinical commissioning group

Areas of interest:

·     Funding models

·     Clinical care models

·     Quality and safety

·     Change management – including cultural change

·     Cybersecurity and some possible solutions – including electronic patient records

Once attendees have committed, areas of interest will be incorporated into a final itinerary. Initial costings including economy flights, accommodation, train travel within the UK and some meals will be approximately $12,000.

Please pass on to your executive and board.

Expressions of interest from CEOs, executives and/or board members of health organisations can be emailed to Kerri.Langes@vha.org.au ASAP.
