ICS Roadshow 2022 – Bristol (Southwest)
PPP and the ICJ are coming together to create a new forum for integrated care. National health and care policy delivered locally.
About this event
With ICSs taking up statutory footing in July, ICS leaders must now move from a period of system transformation to one of service transformation.
PPP’s ICS Roadshow offers a unique opportunity to engage with local health and care leaders, to identify challenges and opportunities of integrated care in specific localities. This series of practical, interactive forums will allow for debate on the key issues facing local system leaders.
Taking a localised approach to the ICS debate also presents opportunities for carers and clinicians on the ground to share their concerns about system pressures, creating compelling and insightful testimony on the reality of delivering integrated care.
Bristol: Using integrated care to live healthier and happier lives
In some ways, health outcomes in the Bristol region are looked upon enviously by the more deprived parts of the country. A high healthy life expectancy, and lower comparative levels of cancer and child mortality would appear to mark the Bristol region as an area where the health and care systems are working well.
But the region has its own unique challenges. With the second highest suicide rate in the country, mental health service transformation is a central priority for the Healthier Together Partnership, an ICS which accounts for Bristol, North Sommerset and South Gloucestershire.
Prevention is also key for the area, as the 2nd highest diabetes rate in England necessitates a holistic approach to care delivery that is defined through preventative care. The region’s ageing population also makes early intervention a critical priority.
The sooner solutions are found, the sooner precious acute care capacity can be released. This cannot come a moment too soon. The ICS resides over a region with Lowest number of G&A and CC beds per 100k population in the country.
Who can attend
Audiences will consist of local ICS leaders and representatives from the NHS, social care, primary care and local government, as well as community workers and social prescribing specialists. Further, the ICS Roadshow will engage with patients and end-users to gather first-hand experience of receiving care within a system in dire need of reform.
This event is for members of the Health and Care industry in the public sector only.
