The NHS' future following Lansley reforms and the Francis Report, and impact on private healthcare, will be top of the agenda at the Association of Medical Insurance Intermediaires' annual private healthcare summit on 9 July.
The day will feature two industry debates focusing on key issues for the PMI sector, exploring whether cost-cutting or innovation can grow the market and discussing whether the "apparent crisis" around NHS reforms makes 2013 the tipping point for private healthcare.
Wayne Pontin, chairman of AMII, said: "These are challenging times for the private healthcare sector and AMII is taking the lead to help secure a successful and profitable future by calling on the industry - intermediaries, insurers and other providers - to come together for a programme of serious debate on the issues that really matter to us all."
The association has announced the line-up for AMII 2013: The Private Healthcare Summit, which includes speaker Professor Nick Bosanquet from the Imperial College and host Sue Saville, ITV medical correspondent.
There will be networking opportunities and an evening dinner following the summit at the Melia White House Hotel.
The summit will return to the Royal College of Physicians for the second time.
