Developing Successful Partnerships in Healthcare

  • Museum of Science and Industry Liverpool Road, Manchester M3 4FP (map)

Hear from an expert panel whilst they debate the challenges in developing successful public private partnerships (PPPs) in healthcare. 

The UK was the first country in the world to develop the concept of public private partnerships. As healthcare delivery becomes ever more complex and rapid pace, such partnerships can enable the delivery of efficient, cost-effective health services, whilst minimising the financial risk. 

Constantly rising demand, prices, changing disease patterns and increasing use of sophisticated technology for diagnosis and treatment have made it virtually impossible to imagine any single organisation providing healthcare services in the future without some type of institutional partnership. 

Manchester has track record in developing such strategic partnerships ranging from global partnerships with multi-nationals to local partnerships. Each one however has one thing in common: all partners have something to gain from the agreement. 

This session, chaired by Deloitte’s Research Director at their UK Centre for Health Solutions will bring together academic, health system and industry leaders including Health Innovation Manchester, Association of British Healthcare Industries and McCann Health to share their first-hand experiences and debate :

  • how to avoid the potential pitfalls and risks linked to PPPs
  • the key principals that underpin successful partnerships
  • practical steps needed to maximise the potential benefits of PPPs

You will also have the opportunity to network with health and industry leaders from the Health and Care Innovation Expo and Triple Helix Conferences, while enjoying some Mancunian hospitality.
