Next steps for transforming caring for people with learning disabilities: funding, integration and community care FRIDAY, 27TH JANUARY 2017 CENTRAL LONDON THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED Guest of Honour: Professor Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer, NHS England With local Transforming Care Partnerships (TCPs) beginning their work, this timely seminar will provide an opportunity to assess future policy priorities for people with learning disabilities across health and social care. Delegates will consider the implementation of NHS England’s Building the Right Support plan, with local plans proposed by TCPs - collaborations between Clinical Commissioning Groups, local authorities and specialised commissioners - due to be assessed against countrywide objectives, with the aim of, by 2019, reducing the reliance on inpatient care and establishing a national service delivery model for commissioners and providers. Further sessions focus on the impact of population-based healthcare, via new Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs), on care for people with learning disabilities, the impact of new inspection methodologies announced in the CQC’s five-year strategy on the regulation of care, and priorities for personalising care in light of the national rollout of the Integrated Personal Commissioningprogramme - as well as improving access to primary care for people with learning disabilities. We are delighted that Professor Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer, NHS England has agreed to deliver a keynote address at this seminar.
