UKSS Conference 2018

UK Systems Society Conference 2018

One-day conference, co-hosted by ECIS 2018

University of Portsmouth

25th June 2018

Can Systems Thinking Help Reshape Health Services?

Provision of health service is facing major challenges in every country. Life expectancy has increased, people are active for longer, and citizens expect first class healthcare. Every day medical advances promise new treatments. The NHS as a ‘system’ is more than 3/4 of a century old. The way that illness and old age are viewed now is different to that when the health service was created. This conference will provide a platform for ideas that might contribute to a way forward.

Speakers: Alex Whitfield, CEO Hampshire Hospitals NHS Trust; and Heather Caule, Director of Nursing Improvement, NHS England

Plus a variety of workshops  using Systems tools and papers delivered on topics relating to the Conference theme.


Cost per delegate for this 1 Day event including refreshments and lunch [but not including dinner] is £85


A UK Systems Society conference in association with SPMC and the Schumacher institute; supported by the World Organisation of Systems and Cybernetics and the Associazione Italiana per la Ricerca sui Sistemi
