Highlights from the summit
Norman Lamb: enabling integration at every part of the systemNorman Lamb MP, Minister for Care Services, spoke of his desire to see a fully integrated system of health and social care in England, which would help us to deal with the growing demand on care from older people.
David Oliver: designing services that are age appropriateDavid Oliver, Visiting Fellow at The King’s Fund, looks at the challenges around providing health care for an ageing population, and the solutions to achieving better joined-up care.
David Prior: driving improvements in the quality of care across the systemDavid Prior, Chair, Care Quality Commission, explains how clinicians, providers, commissioners and service users all have a role in regulation.
Anne Eden: a high value health care systemAnne Eden, Chief Executive, Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, explores the role that hospitals can play in delivering integrated care.
Unprecedented financial and service pressures facing health and social care cannot be tackled by incremental adjustments to existing services and ways of working. A step change is needed given the prospect that public services face a decade of austerity in which budgets will either not increase (in the case of the NHS) or face further cuts (in the case of social care). This requires a commitment to whole system working involving not only health and social care but also other services that influence the health and wellbeing of communities.
With the challenge of an ageing population where more people are living with multiple long-term conditions, and a fragmented service where the needs of the patient often come second to the system, now is the time for the NHS and their community partners to make a reality of integrated care.
