- Manchester Conference Centre
Our 6th annual CPD accredited national conference reviewing delivery of the NHS’ overarching strategy will return to Bloomsbury, London in 2020. Following our series of events assessing the Five Year Forward View, we will hold our second conference providing updates on the Long Term Plan’s initiatives for tackling health inequalities, fostering just workplace cultures, developing preventative approaches to care and public health, bridging gaps in mental health service provision, ensuring NHS services are as accessible to people living with disabilities as they are for those who are not; as well as demonstrating fiscal sustainability in return for legislative commitments to increase funding.
Keynote presentations and panel discussions will provide valuable updates on:
At last year's conference Emily Hough, Director of the NHS England Strategy Group, delivered the keynote address expanding on the Long Term Plan priorities that will play an integral role in delivering wholesale clinical and cultural change within the NHS, including; improving access to mental health services to meet the commitment of achieving parity of esteem between mental and physical healthcare, reducing health inequalities and renewing focus on improving integration of health and social care to assist patients transitioning between systems. Ian Dodge, National Director of Strategy and Innovation - a member of NHS England's board of executive directors, has been invited to deliver this year's keynote address, looking at how LTP initiatives and funding will be delivered, developed and protected.
Following last year’s announcement about a long-term funding settlement for the NHS and the subsequent announcement of the 10-year Long Term Plan in January 2019, the National Audit Office produced a report that examined the progress made by the Department of Health and Social care in the effort to achieve a financially sustainable NHS. Examining the financial position of provider bodies, Clinical Commissioning Groups as well as NHS England, the report focused on the financial flows and mechanisms within the NHS and the actions being taken to make Sustainability & Transformation Partnerships and Integrated Care Systems a successful reality. Robert will discuss details within the report and the recommendations the NAO makes for future periods.
The Health Foundation is establishing a collaborative network of advanced analytical teams across the UK in order to provide national and local health system leaders with insights from data in order to develop a deeper understanding of the factors affecting people’s health.
As the challenges facing health and care services become increasingly complex, the necessity in understanding what is happening on the ground is growing. While there is already a wealth of data available about the care people receive from multiple sources – GPs, specialist services, hospital care and local authorities – datasets are hugely fragmented and often don’t capture the entirety of the care patients receive. The Networked Data Lab will support local teams to run the same analysis on local datasets across the country - helping to build a more complete picture of the quality of care. For example, by linking data from GPs, A&E services and specialist local mental health services, the work of the Networked Data Lab could identify some of the drivers of emergency attendances and admissions for young people living with severe mental illness.
The Health Foundation are seeking expressions of interest from potential partners across the UK - particularly those who have already created a linked dataset across health and social care and are embedded in their local health and care service(s); as well as having established relationships with local decision makers and other local stakeholders.
The digital ecosystem isn't an amorphous collection of digital products and services operating in silos; it is a balanced set of clinical, regulatory, procurement and technological environments aligned with national policy ambitions and delivery of local services. NHSX is leading the largest digital health and social care transformation programme in the world - underpinned by the NHS Long Term Plan. This presentation will cover NHSX initiatives developed to reduce the workload of clinicians and staff, provide people with streamlined access to services, information and referrals, as well as improving patient safety, flow and NHS productivity, including:
The NHS Long Term Plan aims to improve peoples health by ensuring they receive timely and appropriate health checks; an element of which, is improving the level of awareness and understanding across the NHS of how best to support patients and deliver care. The NHS has to make it as easy for disabled people to access health care services as it is for people who are not disabled - this is called making reasonable adjustments, which could include taking measures such as:
The 'Reasonable Adjustments Flag' is a method of indicating patients that may require additional time, attention or specialist care. The initiative is currently being trialled with people living with learning disabilities and autism - the intention being to make it available to everyone in the near future. This presentation will cover the importance of all NHS commissioned services providing appropriate care and treatment for patients and their families. The RA team leaders will discuss how NHS staff will be supported to make the necessary reasonable adjustments to ensure patients get equality of access, experience and outcomes from care and treatment.
A hot, two-course lunch consisting of multiple options will be provided for delegates. We cater for all dietary requirements, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten/dairy-free; just notify us ahead of time should you have any allergens or requirements.
Given the Conservative Party's new parliamentary majority, it is unlikely that the government will encounter much resistance when legislating for health and social care during this parliament. The Long Term Plan envisages legislative changes such as removal of the NHS from competition law constraints, changes to procurement rules - diverging from the remit of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015, reform of the Mental Health Act, amend the Health and Social Care Act 2012, enshrine in law annual funding increases until 2023/24 and cross-party consensus for the long-term reform of the social care system. This session will review how the Health and Social Care Parliamentary Committee will examine the policy, administration and expenditure of the Long Term Plan.
The government is collaborating with pharmaceutical company Novartis to launch a clinical trial for inclisiran, a new cholesterol treatment that could make a significant contribution towards meeting the NHS Long Term Plan's commitment to preventing 150,000 cardiovascular deaths over the next decade. This presentation will look at the clinical trial of inclisiran as an exemplar for future trials of other treatments in the UK.
Heart disease is the second biggest cause of death in the UK, with over 3 million people suffering from atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (high levels of LDL cholesterol build up on the walls of blood vessels, resulting in a thickening and loss of elasticity in the arterial wall and narrowing of the vessels - restricting blood flow to/from the heart) and 2.5 million people currently relying on statins to lower their cholesterol. Inclisiran, a bin-annual injection, is potentially the only cholesterol-lowering therapy in the siRNA class; harnessing the body's natural process of RNA interference to specifically prevent production of the PCSK9 protein in the liver, which enhances the liver's ability to remove LDL-C from the bloodstream. Inclisiran has demonstrated it is capable of halving bad cholesterol in just two weeks and early trials suggest that if the drug is given to 30,000 patients annually it could help prevent 55,000 heart attacks and strokes; with the potential to save a further 30,000 lives over the next decade.
Local government is an essential partner of the NHS in the provision of adult social care, children and young people's mental health services, promoting public health initiatives and workforce planning - all of which are integral to delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan. This presentation will be a forthright conversation about the need for equivalent investment in local government to ensure sustainable funding solutions for social care, public health and wider council services that contribute to improving health and wellbeing.
At Delivering the NHS Long Term Plan conference (2019) Sean O’Sullivan, Head of Health and Social Policy at the Royal College of Midwives, delivered a keynote address reviewing the implications of the Long Term Plan for maternity services - considering the opportunities and challenges that the new policy commitments present for women and families, for maternity services staff and for those responsible for planning and implementing maternity transformation.
One in four women will experience an issue with their mental health in the perinatal period – the duration of pregnancy and anytime up to a year after giving birth. Bolton NHS Foundation Trust and Greater Manchester Mental Health Trust have partnered to spearhead the first perinatal mental health service for women in Bolton and the surrounding areas that access midwifery care. The Trust’s midwives and obstetricians identify women struggling with mental health issues or displaying risk signals during their pregnancy or postnatal period before referring them for further support, specialist input and developing individual care plans.
