BBC College of Journalism teams up with Help Me Investigate for health reporting event

In Uncategorized on February 19, 2013 at 7:08 pm

We’ve teamed up with the BBC College of Journalism for an event on reporting the new health system that comes into force this year.

From April powers to control health spending, and to hold that to account, will be shifted. Over 200 new groups of GPs and other local representatives will have new responsibilities to commission health services, while local councils will also have new spending powers, as well as new responsibilities.

Journalists and the new health system‘ is bringing together the people who will be scrutinising the new clinical commissioning system – journalists, bloggers and councillors – with the new players making key decisions. 

It will discuss what are likely to be the important issues, as well as providing an opportunity for building new contacts with bodies, hyperlocal bloggers and health experts. 

The event is being held at Birmingham’s Margaret Street on March 26. Sign up and get more details at http://reportingccgs.eventbrite.com/
