This year's forum focused on maximising networked and system-wide working to manage ever-increasing demand and bring down diagnostic waits 

As the gateway to improved elective and urgent care pathways, a new wave of ICS-level stakeholders are given the motivation and mandate from the centre to increase diagnostic capacity and reduce wait times. However, as imaging and pathology networks are still maturing, the development and delivery of a cohesive system-wide diagnostics strategy is complex.

With equal weight and focus given to imaging and laboratory diagnostics, this year's HSJ Modernising Diagnostics Forum united the key NHS stakeholders in delivering on the recommendations of Prof. Sir Mike Richards’ 2020 report, to speed up post-pandemic recovery and improve patient outcomes.

This one-day interactive event looked at  how improvements in technology, workforce models and the built environment are making a difference across the country. Discussions took place  with 100+ of your peers on how we can collectively scale and spread these innovations to reduce turnaround and wait times, and ultimately improve population health outcomes.

2024 Highlights

What our delegates say

" A useful and thought provoking day which challenged my perceptions of the limits of what can be achieved in diagnostics in the NHS. "
" A useful reminder of the wholistic approach to diagnostics; patient centric, how to effectively support them on their journey, supporting an already challenged workforce to stay, and deliver outcomes the best we can. "
" Good networking, content and format weak; pathology stream came across as poor cousin "
" A stimulating and thought provoking event for all diagnostics leaders and a great opportunity for networking. "
