With the publication of the NHS’ Long Term Plan and the imminent arrival of the long-awaited Social Care Green Paper, health and social care policy is starting to become clearer.

Join us at our Health and Social Care Conference: A Better Way Forward, taking place in London on 16 May, where an impressive list of speakers will explore the impact of these policies on the role of social enterprises.

We will see how social enterprises are well placed to lead on innovative thinking and to demonstrate how to work with communities and with local people. Chair of NHS Improvement, Baroness Dido Harding will be delivering a keynote in the morning focusing on the Social Care Green Paper and NHS Long Term Plan. Simon Devonshire OBE, Entrepreneur in Residence at the National Physical Laboratory, will also inspire delegates with his talk on digital advances to improve health and social care.

Workshops led by subject experts will delve into the realities and benefits of measuring social impact, provide practical tips on increasing your digital working, look at the opportunities provided by social prescribing; and give guidance on understanding contracts and funding opportunities.

Come along and contribute to discussions on current policy, be inspired by innovations, and take away practical advice to help drive you and your organisation forward.

Book tickets

The conference is of interest to health and social care social enterprises, charities, housing associations, NHS commissioners, local authorities, private providers and all those involved in supporting social enterprises.
