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.

It's proposed that the tour will commence in London on Monday 17 July and depart from Edinburgh on Thursday 27 July.

The suggested itinerary aims to include the following organisations:

·     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.
