NHS England’s Chief Allied Health Professions Officer sets the scene for her second annual conference in London:
The conference, to be staged at the Business Design Centre in London next week, will be attended by more than 400 senior multi-professional leaders, patient representatives, academics and other Arm’s Length Bodies involved in shaping the future of health and care.
The conference offers a platform for AHPs to display their response to the Five Year Forward View including their solutions to the challenges faced with regard to the care and quality, and health and well-being gap.
Delegates will gain innovative ideas to offer solutions to their own challenges, develop knowledge and skills to enable them to deliver transformation, and gain networks to support them in achieving #FutureNHS.
An impressive list of main programme speakers includes Daniel Mortimer, Chief Executive of NHS Employers, who will present ‘Reshaping the workforce’. This draws on the recent publication by the Nuffield Trust commissioned by NHS Employers which argues there is an urgent need to rethink the nature of the NHS workforce if new care models are to succeed in meeting the needs of our populations in the future.
Three further main stage speakers will offer their experience and knowledge delivering innovative solutions: Roz Davies MBA, Managing Director of We Love Life and Recovery Enterprises will speak about putting the ‘We’ back in to well-being. Paul Taylor, Innovation Coach, Bromford Lab, will offer insights in to how, through open innovation, sectors can share, learn and connect. And, Dr Neil Bacon, Chief Executive and Founder of iWantGreatCare will discuss how delivering innovation makes clinicians ecstatically happy.
Dr Joanne Fillingham, Clinical Fellow to the CAHPO and Dr Pete Thomond, Managing Director of Clever Together, will present the emerging AHP mandate for change, co-created during the first phase of the online workshop ‘How AHPs will transform care: a mandate for change’ .
Delegates will be able to contribute their initial thoughts, ideas and comments on the day.
Together with my team, I very much look forward to seeing you on the day.
