The 2017 programme

Health+Care 2017 – Europe's largest integrated care conference - will unleash a wealth of ideas and solutions to support the NHS and social care as it faces its worst ever crisis. The programme will focus on the crucial ‘how’ of delivering complex transformation, with examples from areas demonstrating the most rapid progress in implementing STPs, digital transformation and other priorities.

We are developing the conference agenda through intensive research and discussion with health and care leaders, strategists and frontline reformers up and down the country and internationally to pinpoint the best case studies and innovations. (New for 2017 will be an STP Hub to disseminate learning from the 44 footprints and the Digital Healthcare Show, focussing on digital transformation and interoperability).

The conference will mix it up with a range of session styles from lively debates to fascinating case studies, interactive Q&As, practical, granular-level workshops and handy drop-in clinics. The overall agenda is designed to support you in the ‘how’ of implementing key policy and meeting your strategic and operational goals.

Keynote Theatre 

The Health+Care Show represents the largest annual gathering of commissioners and providers from across the NHS and social care. With the clock ticking on the Five Year Forward View, the Keynote Theatre will bring together leaders and implementers from all parts of the system to debate the challenges and solutions to creating a better integrated, technology-enabled, financially sustainable NHS.

The Keynote Theatre programme will kick off with a lively discussion on STPs, with a sharp focus on how these rapidly compiled blueprints for the future of the NHS will actually be delivered successfully, within tight budgets and tight timeframes. Our panel line-up includes the Rt. Hon. Stephen Dorrell, chair of the NHS Confederation, the Local Government Association’s Sarah Pickup and other inspirational leaders from across health and social care. We have also assembled high profile panels to tackle other key priorities, including finance, mental health and other clinical priorities, workforce, regulation, reconfiguration and making difficult decisions around rationalisation.

Mixed in with lively discussion and debate will be those crucial policy and strategy updates, delivered by key figures from the Government, NHS and local authorities. They will provide clarity and direction for all those on the frontline who have been tasked with turning big plans and ambitious visions into action. They will share their experience in translating grand plans into change that saves money and makes a positive difference to patients Get tips on where to start, what to prioritise and learn from others who have already achieved your ambitions.

Speakers already confirmed for the Keynote Theatre include NHS England’s Matthew Swindells, NHS Improvement’s Jim Mackey and the CQC’s David Behan.  You will also hear from inspirational leaders of entire health and care systems, including Angela Pedder, lead chief executive for the Wider Devon STP, who will be talking about how to activate an entire health and care system to work together for the greater good. Mark Rogers, chief executive of Birmingham City Council and lead for Birmingham and Solihull STP, will talk about how social care can ensure it is an equal partner in healthcare transformation. He is one of only three STP leads from a local authority background. Paul Farmer, Chief Executive of Mind, will be discussing the importance of embedding mental health into transformation plans.

We hope you enjoy the stimulating discussion and debate in the Keynote Theatre alongside the more practical sessions and case studies taking place in other theatres and workshops across the show.

Sustainability Through Transformation Hub - in partnership with NHS England

New highlights for Health+Care 2017 include the Sustainability Through Transformation Hub, delivered in partnership with NHS England, where you will share learning from STPs, Vanguards and other new care models. This showcase feature at the heart of the conference will bring you invaluable nuggets of delivery and solutions to common challenges.

We are also excited to be launching Digital Healthcare – a brand new, cutting-edge event located at the Health+Care Show. The event is your opportunity to delve into the exciting new world of digital technologies that are revolutionising the NHS. You will hear from the brightest innovators in the market and crucially from areas where new technologies are being rapidly adopted to improve patient care, support self-care, promote interoperability and drive greater efficiencies. We won’t gloss over the huge challenges involved in the digital revolution of health and social care but we will strive to give you the skills and solutions to enable you to join it.

Clinical Commissioning Theatre in partnership with the NHSCC

NHSCC

CCGs have reached a critical juncture in their rollercoaster journey from launch in April 2013. For clinical commissioning to survive and flourish in the new, complex landscape of STPs, they must undergo a bold revolution in their approach to planning and contracting services that is far more strategic and outcomes focussed. This theatre will look at how clinical commissioners are rising to the challenge through creating new collaborative commissioning arrangements with other CCGs and local authorities. They are also working in close partnership with a range of providers within STP footprints to ensure the delivery of care that is more patient-centred, cost-effective and technology-enabled.

The Clinical Commissioning Theatre will view the big challenges facing the NHS up until 2020 and beyond through the lens of CCGs. Sessions will cover the future of CCGs and their role in STP delivery with a focus on transforming community services. We will also be covering financial challenges for CCGs; building a multi-disciplinary workforce to support the shift of care out of hospital; tackling unwarranted variation and building more efficient care pathways through learning from  NHS Right Care sites that have achieved the biggest savings. There will also be case studies demonstrating how clinical commissioners are driving improvements in specialist services, mental health, cancer and other clinical priorities.

CCG leads will be actively participating in sessions in other conference theatres as well, including our opening debate in the Keynote Theatre on STP Delivery and another on implementing the Forward View for Mental Health. Following on from our opening debate, STP delivery will be a key theme running through all our conference theatres and in the Sustainability through Transformation Hub, located at the centre of the show. You will learn how STPs are tackling acute care reconfiguration and sorting out A&E (NHS providers Theatre); building resilient general practice and primary care through implementing the GP Forward View (Transforming Primary Care Theatre); maximising the opportunity of medicines optimisation (Medicines Optimisation Theatre) and we will be drilling down into some of the key enablers for STPs, including workforce, IT, governance and communication and engagement (Sustainability through Transformation Hub).

Sessions within the Commissioning Theatre and in all conference theatres will take a multidisciplinary approach to tacking the big challenges. We aim to bring CCG leaders together with the partners they are working with in local health economies to co-produce and deliver plans that will result in real, impactful change. Sessions will put CCGs shoulder to shoulder with their partners from general practice, community, mental health, acute and specialist care as well as with colleagues from adult social care, public health and the voluntary sector. 

The Commissioning Theatre in particular aims to showcase the positive contribution CCGs are making to the delivery of STPs and new care models and to capture how clinical commissioning is evolving to meet the needs of the new NHS.

NHS Providers Theatre - in partnership with NHS Providers and NHS Improvement

NHSProvidersNHS improvement        

Press claims that the NHS is facing a humanitarian crisis this winter are arguably exaggerated, largely thanks to scrupulous winter planning and dedicated staff. However, it is true that NHS trusts are facing sustained and unprecedented financial pressure and demand. This is manifested in routinely missed four-hour targets and large trolley and 12 hour waits. Clearly urgent action needs to be taken before the tipping point is reached when ‘humanitarian crisis’ claims are justified.

The NHS Providers Theatre will present an overview of the key challenges and priorities for NHS trusts up until 2020 and beyond. This theatre will include case studies of relevance to the full range of NHS trusts, looking at how they are increasingly collaborating with each other and with other parts of the NHS and social care to stabilise services and transform them for the future. Topics covered will include the role of NHS trusts in delivering STPs, with a focus on plans to reconfigure acute care and improve A&E. In other conference theatres, we will be looking at how this work is being supported by action to build capacity and capability in out-of-hospital services.

The NHS Provider theatre will also include learning from the best of the ACCs, PACS and other hospital-focussed Vanguards; schemes to tackle delayed transfers of care and an update on the Carter productivity programme and the Model Hospital. You will also hear direct from the CQC about its new approach to regulating hospitals and how your trust can prepare.

Elsewhere in the conference, inspirational speakers from NHS trusts will be contributing to lively, panel discussions and debate on key challenges facing health and social care, covering finance (meeting organisational and system control totals), transforming out of hospital care, building resilient general practice, creating a multidisciplinary workforce and leadership and engagement.

Attending the NHS Providers theatre at Health+Care is an opportunity to hone in on the issues that impact most greatly on your trust, to gain a better understanding of the policies and priorities that you must implement, to share solutions with colleagues from trusts facing similar challenges to your own and to engage with professional from other parts of the NHS and social care who you must work with to build a sustainable NHS.

Transforming Primary Care Theatre in partnership with the NAPC

With the acute care crisis continuing unabated, it is crucial to the long-term sustainability of the NHS that more patients are treated at home and in the community. Here there is scope to deliver more cost-effective, integrated, personalised and proactive care for an ageing population beset with long-term conditions. Healthcare leaders plan that millions will be saved in the process. Unsurprisingly, transforming primary care is a core component of all STPs and one of the nine must-dos for the NHS in 2017/19.

However, moving care out of hospitals is viewed as a high-risk strategy by some. Out-of-hospital services lack the capability and capacity to cope with increased demand and it is widely documented that general practice is on its knees. This conference stream will therefore focus on the urgent action that is being taken through the GP Forward View and the creation of new care models, to stabilise and strengthen general practice and primary care before the decline is irreversible.

With an extra £2.4 billion to support general practice by 2020/21, backed up by a £500 million Sustainability and Transformation package for struggling practices, we plan to share examples of how this investment is filtering down to the front line and making a difference locally. Primary Care workforce and workload will be a big theme, with a look at the new multidisciplinary teams that are being created to support primary care at scale.

The Primary Care Transformation Theatre will include case studies highlighting the collaborative work that is going on across the country to transform general practice, primary and community care for the future. We will be looking at the radical new partnerships that are being forged across the NHS, between health and social care and with the private and voluntary sectors. Attend this theatre for examples of where new integrated care models and new technologies are being successfully deployed to make a difference to the quality, cost and outcomes of care. There will be learning from the most advanced of the Vanguards, Integration Pioneers and NAPC-driven Primary Care Homes, including candid advice on what has and hasn’t worked and how the best ideas can be replicated at scale.  There will be a particular focus on MCPs and PACS, including a look at the practicalities and benefits of taking on the MCP contract and examples of how and why some areas are moving towards becoming Accountable Care Organisations. We will bring you a vision of how general practice is scaling up through federations, super practices and partnerships and through other new models, sharing with you how these new models are being created and their benefits.

Medicines Optimisation Theatre

Medicines Optimisation done really well has enormous potential to deliver substantial financial savings across healthcare and to improve patient outcomes. It is no wonder that many STPs are prioritising medicines optimisation as a way of reducing waste, unwarranted variation and avoidable hospital admissions.

Medicines Optimisation is a top priority for the NHS at both a national and local level. The imminent launch of four regional medicines optimisation committees, developed by NHS England in collaboration with the NHSCC, is an illustration of this fact. The committees are set to streamline the existing medicines optimisation process and maximise its potential to save money and improve quality and safety of care for patients. Speakers in the Medicines Optimisation Theatre will update you on the purpose of the regional committees and how they will support those difficult decisions around medicines usage and bring consistency in local medicine choice and prescribing.

Forward thinkers from all parts of the NHS will gather in this theatre for lively discussion on what we actually mean by medicine optimisation, what excellence in medicines optimisation looks like and how to do it. Case studies in this theatre will highlight the best examples of where inspirational medicines optimisation programmes, driven by commissioners and providers, have led to measurable benefits in terms of improved patient outcomes, reduced wastage and cost savings. We will also look at plans to deliver medicines optimisation at scale through STPs and how to create the right workforce to support successful medicines optimisation.

Other sessions will focus on the delivery of medicines optimisation across entire care pathways through the NHS Right Care programme and medicines optimisation within acute trusts through the Carter productivity programme and the development of the Model Hospital. The Carter Review into hospital productivity identified £800 million of potential savings for the NHS if all trusts could reduce pharmacy and medicines costs to the average. Lord Carter called for the NHS to employ more clinical pharmacists to drive optimal value and outcomes from the £6.7bn it spends on medicines.

We hope delegates attending sessions in this theatre will take away ideas ripe for implementation locally to reduce waste, cut costs and and improve clinical outcomes.
