Understanding Health Devolution

Health devolution is happening but what does it all mean?

Don’t miss this opportunity to take part in this high level workshop to find out all you need to know about health devolution and what it means for you.

Guest Presenter:

Warren Heppolette

Executive Lead, Strategy & System Development, Greater Manchester Health & Social Care Partnership

10.00 till 16.00 Thursday 17th May 2018

Central Manchester location

This one day high level workshop led by Phil Hope, former Minister of State for Care Services and Visiting Professor at Imperial College, and Steve Barwick, Director of DevoConnect, will help you understand health devolution, an increasingly important trend since 2012. Warren Heppolette, Executive Lead for Strategy & System Development at Greater Manchester Health & Social Care Partnership – and one of its main architects – will also address the session and answer questions

The 44 Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) across England are new structures for designing and commissioning health and social care services, often overlaying existing CCG structures. Greater Manchester is the de facto STP trailblazer, where the Combined Authority now co-manages a £6bn NHS and social care budget. But this rapidly changing landscape is also increasingly visible in London, where it is taking its own multi layered form, as well as other health devolution deal areas such as Cornwall and Surrey.

Understanding, navigating and successfully engaging with these new structures and organisations is now a major priority for many public, private and charitable organisations – not least due to increasing demand on NHS and social care services, restricted resources and the fact that a central only focussed approach increasingly has limitations.

This unique workshop will:

  • Help you navigate the changing health and social care landscape in England
  • Determine the implications of health devolution for the commissioning and provision of health and social services
  • Map who’s accountable within health devolution areas and the relationships with national bodies
  • Pinpoint health devolution landscape pressures including population growth, commissioner and provider deficits
  • Determine the primary drivers of decision making in health devolution areas
  • Advise you on the most effective ways of raising your profile in health devolution areas
  • Inform you of the best ways of influencing commissioners and providers at devolved level
  • Debate what going to scale and partnership working really means

Lunch provided.
