Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



Policymakers and stakeholders at this seminar will discuss next steps for improving children and young people’s health outcomes in England.

Delegates will consider the early impact of new models of care on better coordinating children and young people’s health services, and the potential for Sustainable and Transformation Plans in integrating care for local populations.

Further sessions focus on public health initiatives - such as the Government’s childhood obesity plan and the introduction of the levy on the soft drinks industry from 2018, as well as progress on increasing the provision of high quality mental health care for children and young people, as outlined in NHS England’s Business Plan for 2016/17.
