The Kings Fund, an independent think-tank focussed on shaping health and social care practice, has announced the sale of tickets for a diagnostics-centred conference taking place on 16 November. BIVDA’s Doris-Ann Williams is pleased to be part of the high-profile speaker panel at this ‘Meeting Demand: The Changing Picture of Diagnostics’.
The event will explore key topics on increasing diagnostic capacity, workforce, digital connectivity, the use of point-of-care testing and looking at lessons learnt from the diagnostic response to COVID-19.

The event will:
- consider how to plan and map local diagnostic services to address unmet need
- discuss how to use community assets to redefine the diagnostic model
- explore how to embed point-of-care testing and remote monitoring effectively and at scale
- discuss the role of primary care in diagnostic pathways
- consider how to establish community diagnostic hubs to address unmet health needs and widen access to diagnostics.
Doris-Ann will be joined by the conference keynote speaker, Professor Sir Mike Richards, author of the impactful ‘Diagnostics: Recovery and Renewal’ Report. Also speaking will be representatives from NHS trusts, Health Education England, Professor Jo Martin CBE, Kings Fund CEO Richard Murray, Alexandra Pinches who heads up the Community Diagnostic Centre network, and Julie Hart from the Oxford AHSN.
