VODG special session on delivering transforming care
NHS England has a policy ambition to move people with learning disability, autism and/or mental health conditions out of long-stay inpatient facilities. This is an area that some VODG members have been actively involved in through the Provider Taskforce*.
VODG is running a special session in London to bring providers with an interest in this work together.
Tuesday 13th March 2018 (12.15 – 16.30). Member registration is essential via this link.
The event will hear from Ray James CBE (NHS England’s National Director for Learning Disabilities) and former president of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services. The plenary event will brief members on NHS England’s priorities in this area, as well as provide an opportunity to hear the personal views of Ray James leading the work.
Following the plenary session the event will move to a private session with senior directors and chief executives to review and take forward the work of the Provider Taskforce.
* VODG’s Provider Taskforce brings together not for profit organisations to support the delivery of building the right support/transforming care. Members of the Taskforce have put themselves through an independent review process.
The group meets regularly to share practice issues, discuss and respond to emerging policy issues and ideas and to act as a central point of contact for contact for delivery agencies.
