- Manchester Conference Centre
This is Open Forum’s 6th annual national event addressing the delivery of the NHS’ overarching strategy. Following our series of conferences assessing the Five Year Forward View, we will hold our second national event providing progress updates on the Long Term Plan’s initiatives for tackling health inequalities, fostering just workplace cultures, developing preventative approaches to care, bridging gaps in mental health service provision and demonstrating fiscal sustainability targets.
Keynote presentations and panel discussions will provide invaluable updates on:
The conference keynote address will review some of the initiatives that have already had an impact on health inequalities and care provision, including:
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.
With the advent of third sector and NHS digital healthcare apps/wearable technologies that collect patient data, reaping the benefits of high-quality data being accessible across care settings relies on the public having confidence in the effective and appropriate management of data. As such, it is essential that robust cyber security and privacy/data sharing policies are in place to ensure that information is shared in a safe, secure and legal setting.
Current levels of carbon emissions in metropolitan areas like London present a threat to public health and reducing the NHS’ carbon footprint is integral to delivering a sustainable long-term plan. Targets that have been set include the elimination of coal and oil fired primary boilers, introduction of LED lighting programmes, 20% reduction in business mileage and fleet pollutant emissions by 2023/24 – with 90% of the NHS vehicle fleet to transition to low emission engines by 2028; of which 25% will be ultra-low emission.
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 provide 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.
The NHS Digital Academy is a virtual organisation established through a partnership with Imperial College London, the University of Edinburgh, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and Harvard Medical School to provide a new generation of digital leaders with the skills to drive technological transformation in the NHS through a world-class, fully accredited (Post Graduate Diploma in Digital Health Leadership) study programme.
