Over the last few years, the government has been trying to reshape the NHS by making it more responsive to the health needs of regional populations. By dividing England’s NHS into 44 Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs), policymakers hoped to promote new care models by forging links between NHS, councils and other stakeholders.

These are now evolving into Accountable Care Systems (ACSs), involving closer collaboration between the key players, including the private sector and pharma. This system change has been controversial, with critics saying that it is tantamount to privatisation by the back door. But champions of ACSs say that it can improve governance and commissioning outcomes and create a health system that is matched to the population it serves.

This IQVIA/pharmaphorum webinar gives an update on the latest developments and asks how pharma can be a catalyst for change at a time when the NHS is under immense pressure to cut costs and become more efficient.
