FRIDAY 24 NOVEMBER 2017

BRODIES LLP, CENTRAL GLASGOW

HALF-DAY TRAINING SEMINAR

Event Outline

With a keynote input from Diana Hekerem, Head of Strategic Commissioning Support at the Improvement Hub, this half-day training seminar will focus on the commissioning of Health and Social Care services and the role communities and the third sector can play in this process. It will explore:

  • the next steps for strategic commissioning – what does successful strategic commissioning look like?
  • the importance of effective engagement with service providers in the independent and third sectors to help design and commission services based around user needs
  • the need for third sector providers to evidence their value to commissioners and adopt a ‘commercial’ mindset
  • removing the barriers between commissioners and providers and other opportunities to improve the commissioning process

The long-term ambition of health and social care integration is to support a shift from primary to preventative care and from the acute to the community sector. Health and Social Care Partnerships have been tasked with delivering this transformational change.

Integrated Joint Boards are empowered to help shift the balance of care in two key ways – through the management and overview of an integrated health and social care budget; and the allocation of resources as directed by an agreed strategic commissioning plan. Get both right, and IJBs will help deliver services that are more efficient, more effective and more responsive to the needs of the communities they serve.
