2nd Annual Health and Social Care Conference: Preparing for reform, working in partnership

29th March 2012
Central London

Following the success of our first Health and Social Care Conference, September 2011, we are delighted to announce our second such event - a day of speeches, case studies, question and answer sessions and workshops for all those who work within and alongside England?s health and social care sectors; who want to keep abreast of the latest developments in the Health and Social Care Bill and study examples of best practice to help improve their provision of health and social care services.

We hope you can join us to discuss and debate the Government?s proposals for a clinically led National Health Service, to examine the major challenges facing the health and social care sector - an ageing population and regional, and social, health inequalities ? and hear about the new proposals being made to improve services, including preparing for the post healthcare reform environment.

Further Topics to Include:

The launch of the 111 non-emergency number as an alternative to NHS Direct
The importance of professional development amongst frontline NHS staff
Regulation in the health and social care sector, especially the changing roles of the Care Quality Commission and Monitor
Reforming the patient experience ? greater freedom and choice
Commissioning in the NHS
The role of the private and third sectors as key suppliers of healthcare services
