Nuffield Trust Euro Summit 2014

This year's Nuffield Trust Euro Summit focused on the future of hospital services across Europe.  Bringing together policy makers, academcis and practitioners over a two-day forum in Brussels, speakers and participants addressed some of the key questions that face health services and hospital organisations, including:

  • What are the drivers for change in the organisation of hospital services in Europe?
  • What do we mean by ‘hospital’ and what are the essential characteristics of an effective hospital network or system?
  • What is the current range of approaches to organising hospital services for a locality, region or nation, and how is this evolving in different European countries?
  • What are leading thinkers in Europe saying about the future organisation of hospitals?
  • What are hospitals in Europe doing to respond to the increasing challenge of managing multi-morbidity and frailty?
  • What are hospitals in Europe doing to respond to the opportunities presented by e-health and other technological developments?
