Public Lecture

The University of Lincoln is delighted to welcome Simon Stevens, Chief Executive Officer of the National Health Service (NHS), as part of its Distinguished Medical Lecture series.

Stevens leads the work of the NHS nationally to improve health and ensure high quality care for all. He is accountable to Parliament for over £100 billion of annual Health Service funding and, following the NHS 70th anniversary in 2018, has identified five main priorities for the service for the next ten years. These include improvements to mental health services, an overhaul of cancer screening, a renewed focus on children’s services, reducing health inequalities, and a new focus on cardio-vascular diseases.

In his lecture at the University, Stevens will speak about the challenges currently facing the NHS, and how the service will respond to these in the coming decade.

The lecture comes as the University of Lincoln prepares to expect its first cohort of students in the Lincoln Medical School, delivered by the Universities of Nottingham and Lincoln, in September 2019. The programmes will be delivered on Lincoln’s Brayford Pool Campus and will providing much needed medical graduates for Lincolnshire and the NHS. Find out more about the Lincoln Medical School.
