About this event

The NHS long-term plan has pledged a record level of investment in mental health services of £2.3 billion by 2023-24 and promises faster access to services nationally. The plan is extremely welcome for those working within mental health services, however questions remain around how this ambitious plan is going to be delivered.

The programme for October will reflect on the recommendations set out in the Five Year Forward View (FYFV), with representatives from the national bodies on hand to answer your questions around service reform, integrated working and the realities of implementing the NHS long term plan.

Why should you attend?

This comprehensive conference will provide delegates a opportunity to share knowledge and experience with NHS finance colleagues, whilst hearing from technical leaders and experts in the field.
