The Transformation of Care Zone explored the changing face of care and how organisations are working together to improve the health and wellbeing of their local areas.
The Zone focused on three key areas:
- New Care Models – adopting change across the health and care system
- Sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs) – successes and challenges implementing change locally
- Accountable Care Systems (ACSs) – how shared place-based responsibility is leading to new ways of treating and caring for patients
Delegates heard from representatives from the New Care Models vanguards and Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) as well as other partners, including Allied Health Professionals and Healthwatch England.
The vanguards shared their learning on reshaping the New Care Models and how they are being adopted across the health and care system. STPs, including West Yorkshire and Harrogate, spoke about the challenges they have faced so far and their successes in implementing changes to improve patients’ lives locally.
The Transformation of Care zone was sponsored by MSD.
