Priorities for social care in England - funding, sustainable reform, and delivering effective integrated care

December 2021

Price: £95 PLUS VAT

This conference will examine priorities for social care provision in England moving forward in light of the Government’s major announcement on funding - Build Back Better: Our Plan for Health and Social Care - and in the context of acute challenges resulting from the pandemic.

We expect discussion on the implementation, timing, and wider implications of the Build Back Better plan alongside long-term questions around service integration and support for the care workforce.

We are pleased to be able to include keynote sessions with Sir Andrew Dilnot, Warden, Nuffield College Oxford; and Chairman, Commission on the Funding of Care and Support 2010-2011; Michelle Dyson, Director General, Adult Social Care, Department of Health and Social Care; and Anna Severwright, Convener, Social Care Future.

There will also be significant contributions from ADASS; Care England; Carers UK; Future Health Research; IMPACT Centre; Mencap; the NAO; the NIHR; the SCIE; and Surrey County Council.

Overall, this conference will be an important opportunity to discuss priorities including:

  • the Government’s Plan for Health and Social Care and what is needed for funding in the long term
  • the impact of the pandemic on the landscape for social care and the potential for reforms
  • workforce capacity to meet patient needs and priorities for meeting future demand
  • integration, collaboration, effective delivery, and the role of social care within local leadership

The discussion is bringing together stakeholders with key policy officials who are due to attend from the DHSC and the National Audit Office - as well as parliamentary pass-holders from both Houses of Parliament.
