Devolution revolution: can cities and counties defuse the healthcare time bomb?
18:00-19:00 Monday 5th October 2015
KPMG, 1 St Peter’s Square, M2 3AE


  • Stephen Dorrell, former Secretary of State for Health
  • Tony Lloyd, Interim Mayor of Greater Manchester
  • Cllr Izzi Seccombe, Leader of Warwickshire County Council
  • Cllr Philip Atkins, Leader of Staffordshire County Council
  • Michael White, The Guardian (chair)

Localis in association with KPMG will be hosting a panel discussion at the Conservative Party Conference to discuss the future of devolved healthcare in the UK. Centred on the new healthcare landscape that is symbolised by Greater Manchester’s devolution deal, discussion will be structured around the following questions:

  • How will further devolution of powers, funding and responsibilities for health and social care affect and improve future care models? Will it be a catalyst for innovation for new approaches in the sector?
  • What are the main challenges that a more localised care system will bring? Will there be both political and capacity risk?

Champagne and canapes will be served at the event.
