  • Overview

The Health and Social Care Bill, imminently expected to receive royal assent, is the first major piece of health legislation to reform healthcare delivery since 2012.
Supported by the white paper- Health and social care integration: joining up care for people, places and populations, the focus is to provide a more joined up system where collaboration and multi-agency working is embedded to deliver the objectives of the Long-Term Plan.

To inspire the impetus for change, Open Forum Events are pleased to be hosting the Integrated Care-Delivering the Long-Term Plan conference, which will provide a unique opportunity for health and social care professionals, along with other partners, to familiarise themselves with the key proposals to establish integration and become aware of the priorities going forward.
The conference will feature a comprehensive programme of presentations and discussions delivering knowledge, continued professional development and networking to support partnership working and improved patient outcomes.

The plenary agenda, delivered by an array of expert speakers, will provide delegates with a complete overview of the integration initiative, and will feature invaluable sessions of best practice from services working collaboratively.

Register to join us at the CPD accredited Integrated Care-Delivering the Long-Term Plan conference and benefit from a bespoke programme, which has been designed to provide maximum opportunities for learning, opinion sharing and debate, with ample networking time to make connections and knowledge exchange.

"The Key Elements for the Integration White Paper"

The Health and Care Bill intends to reform the delivery of health services and promote integration between health and care in England. This is the first major piece of primary legislation on health and care in England since the Health and Social Care Act 2012. As part of this agenda the Integration White Paper has been published to promote connection, communication and collaboration across the health and care system.

  • Amanda Sullivan, Designate Chief Executive, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) (confirmed)
"Establishing Integrated Care Systems- Reflecting on the Achievements, Opportunities and Challenges "

The new legislation mandates for the establishment of Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) as statutory bodies to cover England by April 2022. Many STPs morphed into ICSs as forerunners and have experience of delivering services in a more integrated system.

  • Annette Bradley, CEO of MA Training, co-founder Aligned Care Programme, Advanced nurse Practitioner, NMC registered tutor, NLP Master Practitioner., M A Training Enterprise Ltd (confirmed)
"How Using an Aligned Care Approach can Help to Reduce Problems Associated with Inequalities in Health and Social Care"

There have been several initiatives over the last few years within health and Social Care with the intention of addressing and reducing inequalities. Very few initiatives have been effective in providing professionals in secondary care, social work and Primary care with the skills and expertise needed to really make a difference using a bottom-up approach. This presentation will demonstrate how an aligned care approach can be the difference that makes the difference.

"An Integrated Apporach-Preventing Lung Cancer Deaths Over the Next Decade"

Lung cancer is by far the commonest cause of cancer death, and in Greater Manchester is the single commonest cause of premature death. This is despite its being almost completely preventable, increasingly predictable, and eminently curable. It remains, however, curiously off the national radar, probably due to a combination of factors which may include a persistent and unaccountable pessimism in some medical circles, a lingering image of lung cancer patients as responsible for their own downfall, and the energetic rearguard action of Big Tobacco in maintaining the inhaling habit and attempting, probably successfully, to perpetuate nicotine addiction into another generation. So, what can we do as a nation?


It is logical to look at prevention, prediction and treatment in reverse order as, respectively, long-term, medium term and short-term components of the lung cancer question:


  1. Treatment: lung cancer patients deserve, but often do not get, prompt attention, often failing to obtain treatment within an appallingly unambitious 62-day target from urgent referral, aggravated now by Covid constraints. Lung cancer survival is intimately linked to Stage, and it is now known that delays of months, even weeks, are responsible for stage-shift to incurability. We need to up our game so that treatment resources wait for patients, not the other way round.
  2. Prediction: it is now known that the Lung Health Check methodology pioneered in Manchester can identify lung cancer at a curable stage in 80% of high-risk patients, avoiding the pitfalls of earlier screening methods, especially high false-positive diagnostic rates resulting in inappropriate thoracotomies. Lung Health Checks have proven cost-effectiveness, now form part of the NHS Forward Plan, but have yet to evolve into a long-overdue national screening programme capable of saving many thousands of lives within a decade, and in doing so reducing the cost of expensive palliation, the price of late diagnosis.
  3. Prevention: smoking causes almost all lung cancer deaths, and still accounts for fully half of all health inequalities experienced by deprived populations; moreover, smoking cessation is the cheapest and most cost-effective intervention any health economy can ever make, and in fact actually yields a dividend. So why has the NHS systematically disinvested from smoking cessation support, ceding it to cash-strapped Local Authorities? It yields massive benefits, even in-year, in the shape of reduced respiratory emergencies, the easing of A&E pressures and lower bed occupancies - all boxes we need to tick, in re-booting our NHS after the Pandemic. A determined Lung Cancer National (or Regional) Plan, addressing the golden triad of Prediction, Prevention and Treatment, is capable by itself of meeting all our targets for Avoidable Deaths, at the same time achieving a game-changing reduction of health inequalities, and a profound improvement in the nation’s health.

So, Lung Cancer, the nation’s biggest killer, can be predicted, prevented, and effectively treated, by uniquely cost-effective methods, with a profound consequent benefit to the nation’s health. What are we waiting for?

The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

Construction of The Bridgewater Hall commenced on 22 March 1993, but the idea of a new concert hall for Manchester dates back to the reconstruction of the Free Trade Hall in the 1950s after wartime bomb damage. The Free Trade Hall was home to the city’s famous Hallé orchestra and also hosted rock and pop concerts. However, despite holding great public affection, the 1850s Free Trade Hall was ill-equipped to respond to the rising standards of service and acoustic excellence demanded by performers and audiences.
