Thank you to everyone who joined us for our online Summit. You can now replay any of the week's sessions by following the links below.
MiP’s annual Member Summit 2023 took place throughout the week of Monday 6 November – Friday 10 November. Each year, we bring together industry leaders, healthcare policy experts and leading journalists to discuss the biggest issues facing NHS managers, share ideas with members and to provide updates on MiP policy and campaigns.
This year we had sessions on NHS pay, pensions and politics. We also reflected on recent reports highlighting how managers are key in bringing down waiting lists and presented the results of our member survey on management regulation and concern raising.
All sessions are now available to replay. To watch any of the sessions please follow the links below. Please note you may still have to register for each session to access the replay.
#ManagingOurNHS: Are more managers key to unlocking NHS productivity?
Monday 6 November: 12 - 1pm
A growing body of evidence suggests that management capacity is intrinsically linked with clinical outcomes in the NHS. A lack of managers is causing gaps that it is being filled by clinicians, removing them from caring duties while the backlog continues to grow. Now is the time to discuss sensibly how managers can best support clinical colleagues to bring down waiting lists and facilitate faster care for patients.
Join Rachel Wolf, co-author of the Institute for Government report: The NHS Productivity Puzzle, and Emma Challans-Rasool, Director and Chair of #Proud2bOps to discuss what role managers play in unlocking NHS productivity.
Why the NHS workforce crisis won’t be solved without Agenda for Change
Tuesday 7 November: 12 – 1pm
Our regular session on NHS pay - tune in for updates on pay in every nation of the UK and learn about MiP's approach to secure a fair and meaningful pay award in 2024.
Industrial action by UNISON and MiP members worked this year when governments across the UK shifted their stance on NHS pay and negotiated directly with striking unions. The deal in England brings a major programme of non-pay elements designed to help Agenda for Change recruit and retain staff. Join this session to hear about why the strike worked, what next for Agenda for Change, and the outlook for pay and industrial relations over the winter and into next year.
Join MiP Chief Executive Jon Restell and UNISON's Deputy Head of Health Helga Pile and share your thoughts on key topics such as job evaluation, the pay review body and pay issues not just for bands 8 and 9 but the staff you manage.
After Letby: perspectives on management regulation and how we raise concerns
Wednesday 8 November: 1 – 2pm
Since the conclusion of the Lucy Letby case, there have been renewed calls for action to prevent something as horrific as this happening again. One such intervention gaining significant traction is for NHS managers to be regulated by statutory legislation, underpinned by new professional standards. Is this the quick-fix that politicians hope it will be, or does it miss the point entirely? Many believe that the culture around raising concerns is the more urgent and important priority.
Join Matthew McClelland, Executive Director of Strategy and Insight for the NMC and Karen Bonner, Chief Nurse at Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust and hear about how professional regulation works, debate the implications for NHS managers, and have your say on raising concerns and whistleblowing, as both a manager and an employee.
What the Health? In conversation with Alastair McLellan, HSJ Editor, on politics and policy in the run up to the General Election
Thursday 9 November 12 – 1pm
You’ll get a more conclusive answer to ‘how long is a piece of string’ than ‘when is the next General Election’ – but we do know one thing. It must take place before the end of January 2025 and the party manifestos are being readied. Following what is most likely the last conference season before an election is called, MiP Chief Executive Jon Restell and HSJ Editor Alastair McLellan discuss the state of politics around health and social care, look at the Conservatives and Labour’s health commitments and consider the fate of NHS management both in the run up to and after the election.
