This zone was dedicated to exploring innovative new ways of delivering better care for local people. Fifty vanguards are leading on the development of new models of care which will act as the blueprints for the NHS and social care moving forward and the inspiration to the rest of the health and care system.
Delegates visiting the new care models zone heard first-hand from the local teams who are delivering innovative changes on the ground to improve care for their populations and the working lives of staff, as well as the national experts who are supporting them to deliver these changes.
There were a total of 29 half-day sessions held by leaders of vanguard teams from throughout England, and vanguards also led 11 separate sessions in the Expo 2016 pop-up university, giving even more in-depth information to delegates.
High-profile speakers including National Adviser to the New Care Models Programme Sir Sam Everington, Chief Allied Health Professions Officer at NHS England Suzanne Rastrick and National Voices Chief Executive Jeremy Taylor took part in a packed agenda of “expert in the zone” sessions.
