May 2020 saw the announcement of four new integrated care systems (ICSs), taking the total number to 18 and meaning that half the country’s population is now covered by an ICS.
This virtual conference draws on the learning from existing systems as we approach the deadline to have every part of the country covered by an ICS by April 2021, as set out in the NHS long-term plan.
In recent months, systems have moved quickly to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic. This has accelerated some aspects of integration and collaboration between local organisations. The event provides insight into how local areas must now make the most of this important opportunity to embed and enhance these changes by creating the right conditions for system working in the Covid-19 recovery and beyond.
Join us to hear from local examples of care models being transformed and collaborative relationships and trust between partner organisations and their leaders strengthened. You will learn about how ICSs are intended to play a central role in the co-ordination and delivery of services, bringing together hospitals, care homes, primary and community care and local government. You’ll also hear about the role of places and neighbourhoods within ICSs, and how these layers of the emerging system architecture fit together.
This virtual conference takes place over four half-days. If you are unable to join all of the sessions, you will have the opportunity to catch up on demand until 25 October.
