In order to continue delivering excellent services for patients, NHS organisations have to consider innovative approaches to improve efficiency and generate additional revenue streams, whilst maintaining a high standard of customer service.

This A Guide to a Successful NHS Joint Venture course, will give delegates the necessary tools to navigate through the complex process of setting up a joint venture. By the end of the day delegates will fully understand the legal intricacies of setting up a joint venture and develop more effective strategic partnerships with private sector organisations, to ultimately enable the better provision of services.
