Description:
The Health and Social Care Bill was introduced in the Parliament on 19 January 2011. The Bill is a crucial part of the Government’s vision to modernise the NHS so that it is built around patients, led by health professionals and focused on delivering world-class healthcare outcomes.

The Bill takes forward the areas of Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS (July 2010) and the subsequent Government response Liberating the NHS: legislative framework and next steps (December 2010), which require primary legislation.

It also includes provision to strengthen public health services and reform the Department’s arm’s length bodies. In this changing world there is an ever increasing need for appropriate structural and functional definition and governance. Enterprise architecture aims to improve effectiveness of the business itself. This event will explore the challenges associated with EA in the NHS.

This event is organised by BCS Enterprise Architecture Specialist Group in Association with Assist Yorkshire & Northern Branch, and is supported by BCS West Yorkshire branch
