In the fast-paced environment of health and care, it is very easy to feel disconnected from one another as we grapple with the challenges of increasing specialisation, constant reporting and inspections, and the seemingly relentless need to be seen to deliver.
Eating lunch or an afternoon tea together, and chatting over some common ground is a fantastic chance for us all to see things a little differently and help us make better connections, be better colleagues, and to better serve our patients and populations.
Melting Pot @UCLPartners is based upon the model developed by Kaleidoscope Health & Care and supported by the NHS London Leadership Academy.
Who can join in?
Lunches/teas are open to anyone working in health, social care, voluntary sector and relevant academic organisations in or around the UCLPartners geography, or nationally.
What is it?
Each lunch/tea is a 90-minute discussion forum with no other agenda, just bringing together diverse groups from across health and care, different disciplines, backgrounds, and settings. The aim is to discuss a particular topic of shared interest, and most importantly, enjoy lunch – all under the Chatham House rule.
This week’s guest speaker for the lunch is Paul Burstow, who will be helping us consider the question:
“Is maintaining a National Health Service too expensive, and too much of a sacrifice for the rest of the care system?”
Organisers will need to share names and mail addresses of participants, so please make sure you are happy for others attending to know this before registering, and please be available promptly at 12:30pm and for the whole lunch.
