KING'S FUND LUNCH: 2 DECEMBER
The King's Fund is a highly influential organisation in the field of medicine and health care. With the major reorganisation of the National Health Service currently underway they are playing a key role in advising and influencing this huge and complex change programme. Further details are at www.kingsfund.org.uk/ Incidentally I fully approve that the Home Page of this site leads on to a blog written by members of the senior management team.
The Drapers' Company has had a long association with the King's Fund stretching back over a century. This is recognised by the fact that the King's Fund holds one of its meetings at the Hall each December and then has luncheon with the Court of Wardens.
This year we welcomed both a new Chair and Chief Executive, Sir Christopher Kelly and Chris Ham.
In my short speech of welcome I mentioned that we were proud to be associated with the Fund and recognised the vital role they had to play as a 'critical friend' of the National Health Service as it underwent massive change.
