Westminster Health Forum

Next steps for personalised healthcare - learning from the IPC pilots, expanding personal health budgets and key issues for the 10-year plan

Morning, Tuesday, 23rd October 2018

Sixty One Whitehall, London SW1A 2ET


This seminar will assess next steps for personalised healthcare in England.

The conference will be an opportunity to discuss the priorities for the NHS 10-year plan, with the integrated and personalised care working group currently contributing to the development of the final plan. Delegates will consider its impact on personalised care and the future role for social prescribing, co-production, and patient choice.

Discussion is also expected on key issues emerging from the Government’s recent consultation on widening personal health budgets and integrated personal budgets.

Further sessions will examine the early findings from the IPC pilot programmes rolled out in 18 areas across England - as each trials a different approach to tailor services to individual needs and integrate services across health, social care and the voluntary and community sectors. With NHS England aiming to make IPC a mainstream model of care across England by 2020, delegates will focus in particular on progress so far and how these findings might inform further roll-outs.

Following the Government’s commitment to expand Integrated Personal Commissioning and PHBs to between 50,000 and 100,000 people by March 2021, the seminar will also provide an opportunity to assess their contribution so far in enhancing care and the quality of life.

Attendees will consider what more might be done to develop the evidence base on the impact of PHBs, how budgets have been used and the extent to which this has been successful, as well as who should be eligible in the future and what further steps might be taken to improve safeguarding arrangements for budget holders.
