National Voices’ conference on Integrated Care Systems
On 23 June 2022, National Voices is holding an all-day conference, as we explore the topic of Integrated Care Systems (ICSs), on the eve of ICSs becoming statutory bodies that cover the entirety of England. Now is the right moment to identify the changes we want to see as a result of this fundamental shift in the way the health and care system is organised. We want to see better, more equal outcomes for people, especially those not currently well supported by existing models. We also want to see more coordinated and effective care that enables people to live well, with fewer barriers between communities and formal services.
The day will consist of high profile, topical panel discussions and engaging workshops. During the conference we will have a number of expert speakers joining us, including the keynote speaker, Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive of NHS Confederation, and of course National Voices Chief Executive, Charlotte Augst. A series of workshops will cover crucial topics, including health inequalities, social prescribing and others to be confirmed.
We look forward to welcoming a range of individuals and organisations to this event, which will offer an opportunity for the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector to have constructive conversations with system leaders; ensuring that people and communities are involved appropriately and that the result of the new ICSs is a positive impact on the way people experience healthcare.
