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, the HSJ Modernising Diagnostics Forum unites 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.

Join this one-day interactive event to deep-dive how improvements in technology, workforce models and the built environment are making a difference across the country. Discuss with 100+ of your peers how we can collectively scale and spread these innovations to reduce turnaround and wait times, and ultimately improve population health outcomes.


Why join us in April?

  • Discuss with 100+ peers from across the country how to turn the hive of activity around diagnostics into a cohesive local strategy 
  • Gain access to diagnostic best practice, as verified through the HSJ Awards process, and discover how you can replicate their successes 
  • Work with colleagues from across both the imaging and pathology space to identify opportunities for collaboration and efficiency
