Join our Journey – shaping health and care
13th February 2019 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pmFree
Our health and care system aspires to develop an Integrated Care Systemacross North East and North Cumbria. We want to develop systems that provide the best health and care for our populations in the right place at the right time with the best trained and supported workforce. This means that we need to plan how we will work in different ways, respond to advances in care and patient expectations whilst maximising our use of technology, delivery of care closer to home and much more. We need to consider as a system what the priorities should be and adapt both what we want do and how we do it.
We need to get the strategy for development of the ICS right. So, to ensure we have an understanding that reflects the work that you do and your aspirations for quality care now and in the future, we are inviting a broad range of people to a series of regional events to join our journey and participate in a Big Health and Care Conversation . We want to hear from health and care practitioners, volunteers and patients to get insights into what has worked well in your local system and what practitioners feel should be prioritised in terms of a future strategy for our region. We want to understand your priorities, challenges and your proposed solutions to provide the best care to the people of Cumbria and the North East.
If you would like to contribute please let us know. We have input from senior system leaders through the ICS governance structure but we feel there is real value in hearing from practitioners. If you feel that this sounds like a worthwhile process but it is not the thing you normally do then you are exactly the sort of person we need to be there!
