Upcoming webinars


Title: Learning Disabilities: Share and Learn webinar
Date: Thursday 28 July 2016
Time: 12:30 pm


Topic 1

Personal budgets – expectations and support for Transforming Care partnerships

Guest speakers: Martin Cattermole, Personal health budgets advisor and Diane Domenico, Personalisation lead, learning disability programme – NHS England.

Building the Right Support sets out the expectation of a ‘change in culture, a shift in power to individuals and a change in services.’ It also says that ‘people with a learning disability and/or autism are citizens with rights, who should expect to lead active lives in the community and live in their own homes just as other citizens expect to.’

A key part of making this happen is ensuring that the system adopts more person-centred and personalised approaches. Over the last year a range of support has been delivered to help TCPs include more person-centred approaches in their transformation plans. This webinar will explain how personal budgets fit with transforming care, what partnerships are being asked to deliver and what support is available.

Topic 2

Transforming care through Shared Lives: how to set up or develop a Shared Lives scheme for people with learning disabilities and complex needs.

Guest speakers: Alex Fox, CEO and Anna McEwen, executive director of support and development – Shared Lives Plus.

This is a time when we need to think about new and radical options to support people with health needs, community-based care can be more cost effective than that in traditional institutions. This means can receive the treatment they need whilst remaining in their community, living amongst family and friends, giving them the best chance of building long term health and resilience.

Shared Lives offers an alternative approach for people who need support, where trained Shared Lives carers share their own homes and family lives with adults after a careful matching process. This approach has a strong track record over many years and continues to grow in what is an increasingly challenging context for social care.


Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis for HIV consultation webinars

Date: Please click on the date you would like to attend to be taken to the registration page.

Description: NHS England will be holding two webinars (online meetings) to help support the public consultation on Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis for HIV. The purpose of the webinars are to provide an opportunity to learn about, seek clarification and discuss the proposals as set out in the draft policy proposition in order to help participants to submit informed responses via an online portal. There will also be an opportunity to ask any questions of the clinical lead who led the development of the policy and ask NHS England commissioners any questions around the policy development process and next steps. Although the content of both webinars will be similar, local authority/public health colleagues are encouraged to attend the second webinar as that webinar will particularly focus on the implications that the policy (if approved) may have for local authorities.
