This conference will consider the future of health devolution in London, examining the potential impact of the London Health and Care Devolution Programme on the funding and delivery of health and social care services.
It is timed to facilitate discussion on the Programme’s five health devolution pilots, which focus on health and care integration, making better use of health and care buildings and land, and prevention - including the use of licensing and planning powers to shape healthy environments.
Delegates will have the opportunity to discuss the impact of the pilots so far across London, and possible lessons moving forward as stakeholders consider options for further devolution. Sessions will also consider the potential for the devolution programme to support ongoing transformation in the NHS - including London’s five Sustainability and Transformation Plans - its implications for the role of local authorities in funding and delivering services, as well as the opportunities it presents for key areas of provision, such as primary care and public health.
Speakers and other delegates at this conference are expected to be a senior and informed group including Assembly Members and senior officials from the GLA, Members of both Houses of Parliament, senior government officials involved in this area of public policy, healthcare professionals, representatives of the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, academics, charities and user groups, together with reporters from the national and trade press.
