He said: ‘The aim of the event is to bring together the different population-based new models of care so we can learn from each other and share information as we are all doing things differently from each other, depending on local health needs.

‘It is also a chance to celebrate progress.

‘But of course everyone who attends on the day is only too aware of the very real challenges facing the NHS as we move forward.

‘NHS services have to change and move with the times if they are to be sustainable.’
