IPC Partners Conference: Meeting needs and reducing demand in public care - 19-20 January 2016

The next event for IPC Partnership members will take place in Reading on 19th and 20th January 2016. The theme will be 'Meeting needs and reducing demand in public care'.
Organisations across health and social care anticipate that the Comprehensive Spending Review will require innovative and effective responses to meet the challenge of further budget reductions or increased efficiencies. We are currently working with a number of organisations who are already rising to these challenges and will bring these examples and others from around the country to look approaches and activities to reduce and manage demand while still meeting outcomes and meeting wellbeing requirements.

In keeping with recent successful events, there will be a mix of IPC and Partner presentations, shared learning discussions and an opportunity to hear from a range of invited speakers including John Bolton who will share his experience.

Full details of the agenda for the event and planned activities will be sent out to Partners in November.


IPC Partnership Conference June 2015: 'The Care Act, the next steps...'

The IPC Partnership Conference in June 2015 focused once more on the Care Act and attendees were given the opportunity to review the progress being made in implementing the significant changes, together with a chance to network, share good practice and learn from each other. The event enabled attendees to explore practical examples of how organisations have been developing their agendas and to reflect on their own progress. The event included a mix of IPC and Partner presentations, shared learning discussions and an opportunity to hear from invited speakers John Jackson of Oxfordshire County Council and Stephen Sloss of Salvere.
