Pharmacy, Medicines, and Specialised Commissioning in the new NHS

Pharmacy, Medicines, and Specialised Commissioning in the new NHS - NHS insights webinar with: Professor Inderjit Singh Chief Pharmacist at University Hospitals Birmingham

What changes can we expect to pharmacy, medicines management, and specialised commissioning in the new NHS? What will the introduction of medicines registers, as outlined in the Government’s Health and Care White Paper proposals, mean for pharmacy?

Professor Inderjit Singh (Chief Pharmacist at University Hospitals Birmingham) joined Tom Clarke (Director, Mtech Access) on Friday 26th March at 2.00 pm to explore all this and more in our live webinar.

In our March #WhispersWordsofWisdom webinar, Tom Clarke was joined by Professor Inderjit Singh to explore how pharmacy and specialised commissioning are evolving in the new NHS.

The UK Government’s Health and Care White Paper was published on 11th February. The document sets out a major proposed reorganisation of the NHS in England that is largely in line with recent NHS policies around integration, consolidation, and control. Medicines were mentioned sparingly and only in the context of the new medicines registers. However, other changes will have a significant impact on pharmacy.

Professor Singh is one of the leading pharmacists in today’s NHS and is currently Chief Pharmacist at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust. He has responsibility for the provision of the pharmacy service within the Trust and for ensuring appropriate governance of medicines. He provides strategic oversight into commercial pharmacy matters and strategic support to Heath Trust Europe, a collaborative procurement hub based in Birmingham.

We are excited to welcome Professor Singh to the Whispers’ Words of Wisdom webinar series.

This webinar forms part of our monthly Whispers’ Words of Wisdom series, in which we have in‑depth, comprehensive conversations with senior colleagues from the NHS. We explore what their immediate priorities are, what they see as the greatest challenges currently faced by the NHS, and how the NHS might respond to these challenges.
