As pressure on the health and care system mounts – budgets don't match demand and although transformational change is happening, the reality is patchy and complex. This conference will seek to interpret the developing new systems and models as well as explore the role social enterprises can play in leading and influencing the proposed new local systems to deliver the best and more appropriate care for their residents.

Workshops at the conference will include:

  • Building Resilience: partnerships & diversification
  • New Models of Care: MCP, devolution & ACOs
  • Social value and healthcare: launch of new research & advice on demonstrating social value
