The Health and Social Care Act 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.

Four months into the implementation of the Health and Care Act, Sarah Walter, Director of the NHS Confederation's Integrated Care System Network, will reflect on the progress ICSs have made so far and the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
ICS’s have large agenda, balancing different perspectives and short and long-term objectives. This presentation describes the developing approaches to address these challenges and gives some reflections on early months of operating.
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.
The Health and Care Act gives CQC a duty to independently review and assess how Local Authorities are delivering their Care Act functions under Part 1 and creates new powers for the oversight of Integrated Care Systems (ICSs).
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:
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 NHS Long Term Plan includes a commitment to increase the NHS workforce, as well as to train and recruit more professionals to enhance the experience for patients. This presentation discusses the development and implementation of a degree apprenticeship, and how Manchester Metropolitan University’s Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship programme in Health and Social Care can support the Long Term Plan and the impact of Integrated Care Systems.

Proactive Care Team (PACT) was established, working with partners to provide holistic, person-centred care (and encourage self-care) for people with moderate frailty, to prevent it from becoming severe in the near future. The PACT share their results, hurdles and outcomes to prove how integrated working has a positive impact not only on patients but also reduce their GPs and Hospital patient admissions numbers.
As we move to integrated systems, this session will explore what the social care sector needs to engage at pace and deliver seamless care to citizens. Benefits of investment in care, and the opportunities for prevention will be examined, as well as what we’ve learned during Covid-19 about the capability of the workforce in the social care sector. The challenges for social care in the context of systems work will also be discussed.
Team Up is Derbyshire’s Ageing Well Programme, we will be discussing this ambitious programme and how it is being transacted
