2017 Network conferences - Don't miss out

You can still secure your place at an upcoming Network conference 

The 2016/17 conference season kicked off in September, and since then we have welcomed over 800 members to hear the initial findings and good practice from the Radiology, Emergency and Urgent Care, Pharmacy and Medicines Optimisation, Community Services and Hospitals, Mental Health, and CAMHS projects. Delegate feedback has been extremely positive, with scores for overall impression at an average of 88% this year. As the work programme continues into 2017, we are looking forward to welcoming more members to the following events.

Older People's Care in Acute Settings Conference

15th February 2017, etc venues, Fenchurch Place

The Older People's Care in Acute Settings project focuses on the care of older people in acute settings, and has been developed in conjunction with the British Geriatrics Society. The project considers the pathway of older people through secondary care, beginning in A&E, through to assessment units and inpatient care, and finishing with supported discharge teams.

At the conference, the Network Director, and support team will present the key findings from the 2016 iteration of the project. We will also be joined by sector professionals such as NCD of Dementia- Alistair Burns, and members who will present good practice case studies.

Benchmarking Operating Theatres & Planned Care Conference

28th February 2017, etc venues, Fenchurch Place

The Theatres project returned this year, and provides the most comprehensive intelligence available on delivery and performance in NHS operating theatres. Planned Care for Commissioners is a new project in the 2016/17 work programme, and aims to provide a strategic overview of the investment in the healthcare system on planned care, and develop benchmarking analytics to fill the gap in the data already available to commissioners. Between the two projects, we have received over 130 submissions.

At the conference, we will present the initial findings from both projects, and hear from NCD of MSK- Peter Kay, in addition to fellow members who will present good practice studies.
