Strikes hit big healthcare meeting

One of private healthcare’s biggest annual events – themed as ‘Navigating the Future  Together’ – had to be postponed due to fears that most attendees and speakers would not be able to find their way there.

LaingBuisson’s 10th Private Healthcare Summit, at Westmin­ster’s QEII Centre, fell victim to a planned tube strike and was called off with just over a week to go. 

The educational and networking event planned to stimulate the private healthcare sector ‘to look forward, not back, and consider how providers, payers and patients will interact in a changing world of healthcare’.

Conference speakers from various countries were due to tackle some key issues facing the sector, including economic turmoil and the impact on healthcare, cost containment, recruitment and retention, the meaning of ‘value- based healthcare’ and developing a digital community.

The new date for the event is Wednesday 17 May.
