The Health and Social Care Conference 2016: Enhanced, efficient and effective care through integration and technology
Health and social care is experiencing one of the worst crises in a generation, with austerity, staffing shortages and service silos threatening the very future of our care services. Although the Government announced £116.4 billion funding for the NHS in the 2016 Budget, there are concerns that this will not alleviate the added pressure that the 7 day NHS will place on services. The lack of funding for care services adds to these pressures, with some hospitals being unable to release patients back into the community during recovery due to a lack of care places. The focus continues to be on how we can best integrate our care services to not only improve efficiencies, but also improve the quality of care.
Join us for The Health and Social Care Conference 2016 to hear how healthcare practitioners and policy makers are meeting these challenges head on, and learn from examples of best practice from across the country. This exciting conference will include the following:
- Funding and budgets – How can health and social care weather austerity whilst maintaining standards of care?
- National Policy – Understanding the implications of the 2015 Health and Social Care Act… What impact is this legislation having on creating a joined up service through information sharing?
- Workforce and Skills – How can the staffing crisis across health and social care be addressed in the face of increasing pressures around aging populations, skills shortages and pay disputes?
- Integration – Innovative approaches and the role of technology. Discuss the challenges, the opportunities and examples of best practice.
- Devolution - A ‘new era for Greater Manchester’ started on 1 April 2016, as the region became the first in the country to take control of its combined health and social care budgets – a sum of more than £6 billion. What will this mean for health and social care services in Greater Manchester and what will be the wider impact as other regions watch closely?
