Presented by: Visiting Professor and former Care Services Minister, Phil Hope, and award-winning public affairs consultant and Director of DevConnect, Steve Barwick
Places are limited, so please book early to avoid missing out.
This interactive session will include a presentation on the current drive towards closer partnership working and a more localised, devolved NHS, asking whether the Greater Manchester ‘Devo-Manc’ model is the new norm in England; what other developments are of significance, including in London at the GLA; and what this means for providers, commissioners, patients, the third sector, and all those with an interest in communicating with, and influencing, the health economy of the future.
Specifically, Phil and Steve will set out:
- The changing health and social care landscape – STPS and local authorities; partnership working and integration – including key detail on the health devolution underway in Greater Manchester and London
- The primary drivers of decision making among key players (e.g. Mayors, STPs, CCGs, Councils, acute providers, community health providers, accountable care structures) in health devolution areas
- The implications of health devolution for the commissioning and provision of health and social services at different levels as well as more generally for communications professionals
