Safeguarding the NHS for a generation is the theme for the annual LSE Health and Social Care lecture. Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt MP will set out the government's reform programme for the NHS, explain how the reforms will create a patient-led NHS, where improvements to standards of healthcare are continuous and driven by patients not politicians. The Secretary of State will tackle issues such as use of the private sector to deliver NHS services, greater choice for patients, and getting efficiency, productivity and better value for money. She will place the reform programme in the context of social democratic values and a fast-changing society with complex, diverse and ever-increasing demands on our system of health care. This lecture is a must for everyone with an interest in health policy, public service reform, and the latest thinking from a leading member of the Cabinet
Patricia Hewitt was appointed Secretary of State for Health in May 2005.
