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

June 24th and 25th 2015, Oxford Hotel, Oxford

The next IPC Partnership Conference will pick up from the event in November 2014, focusing once more on the Care Act.  IPC Partners will have the opportunity to review the progress being made in implementing the significant changes and a chance to network, share good practice and learn from each other.

The event will provide you with a chance to explore practical examples of how organisations have been developing their agendas and to reflect on the progress of your own plans.

The event

In keeping with our recent successful Partnership events, there will be a mix of IPC and Partner presentations, shared learning discussions and an opportunity to hear from invited speakers.  There will also be a number of themed discussions around:


  • Assessment and eligibility
  • Information and advice
  • Commissioning for advocacy


Practical details and booking

Each of our Partners is offered four free places at the conference.


The event will be held at the Oxford Hotel, Godstow Road, Oxford, Oxfordshire, OX2 8AL. The venue is on the A40 and the A34, providing easy access from across the country.   The Oxford Hotel is just over 3 miles from Oxford Railway Station and easily accessible by taxi from outside the station.
