1.5 Breakout session: In Urgent Need of Attention – How are ambulance services transforming to secure themselves as an integral part of the future health and care system?

STPs represent a very significant change to the planning of health and care services in England but what role does the ambulance sector play in them? This session looked at how the ambulance service can become an integral part of the current and future wider health and care system - from STPs to accountable care systems - illustrating the work both commissioners and providers of ambulance services are doing to ensure their future sustainability. The discussion explored the other critical services provided through NHS 111 and Patient Transport Services (PTS). 

Speakers: Yvonne Rispin, North West Director of Ambulance Commissioning and Chair of the National Ambulance Commissioners Network; Will Hancock, CEO of South Central Ambulance Service NHS FT; Prof Keith Willett, Director for Acute Care of NHS England; and Jaqui Lindridge, Consultant Paramedic of London Ambulance Service NHS Trust.

1.6 Breakout session: Stop competing and start sharing

Getting the right people in the right place at the right time is the big challenge for the NHS. For the last five years, Trusts have been competing for a diminishing resource pool. Our experience of working with neighbouring Trusts that collaborate on their staffing needs shows that: it helps improve utilisation of scarce resources; reduces dependence on expensive staffing agencies; and improves the patient experience. This session explored some of the opportunities and exposed the blockers that get in the way of working together.

2.2 Breakout session: Putting Primary Care First – How is Wales securing the future of primary care as the bedrock of 21st Century provision?

The National Primary Care Plan for Wales is a genuine attempt to better support the delivery of care for people in their community and their homes. Innovative integrated community partnerships with local partners and communities are being used to promote new ways of working, through initiatives such as social prescribing. This session brought together key examples of this in action and showed how much Wales has to offer in terms of lessons on integration, particularly in social care and care being delivered with people in their own communities.

Speakers: Dr Andrew Goodall, CEO of NHS Wales and Director General for Health and Social Services of the Welsh Government; Judith Paget, CEO of Aneurin Bevan University Health Board; Dr Liam Taylor, Assistant Medical Director of Aneurin Bevan University Health Board and GP in Newport, South Wales; Tanya Strange, Divisional Nurse (Primary Care and Networks) of Aneurin Bevan University Health Boar; and William Beer, Consultant in Public Health of Aneurin Bevan University Health Board.

2.6 Breakout session: Brexit and Beyond – Securing the health and social care workforce, now and in the future

The UK is in the early stages of exiting the EU. The Cavendish Coalition has formed to represent the collective workforce issues and opportunities for the UK health and social care sector. This session provided the latest insights from the UK and Europe. It also looked at the public perceptions of Brexit and immigration and considered what it means for our relationship as an employer with local communities.

Speakers: Danny Mortimer, CEO of NHS Employers; Elisabetta Zanon, Director of NHS European Office; Jill Rutter, Director of Strategy and Relationships of British Future; and Nadra Ahmed, Chair of the National Care Association and co-convenor of the Cavendish Coalition

Fringe session: Accelerating discharges with housing advice and support solutions – models that work (Family Mosaic, Home group and Riverside)

Patients medically fit for discharge often remain in hospital because of their housing situation. They may need housing advice, access to new housing solutions, property checks, aids or adaptations, welfare support, repairs or even ongoing health-management. This session showed how specialist housing providers can solve these problems by providing hospital discharge support services that are effective, efficient and financially viable.

Speakers: Moira Griffiths, Group Care and Support Director of Family Mosaic; Rachael Byrne, Executive Director New Models of Care of Home Group; Boaz Elieli, Head of Health and Care of Riverside; Kat Sellers, Futures Programme Coordinator of National Housing Federation; and Heather Tierney-Moore, CEO of Lancashire Foundation Care Trust.

3.3 Breakout session: Leading complex system change – the challenges and solutions to creating an MCP

This session talked through the process to create a new MCP and the leadership challenges and success factors. It explored the multi-facetted approach to this change programme including: the impact of public and stakeholder engagement, organisational development, partnership working and contractual solutions. And it explored the different system assets and how they contribute to a successful outcome: the role of leadership; the use of technology; the redesign of workforce; the opportunities and challenges of finances; and the benefits of an outcome-based approach.

Speakers: Paul Maubach, CEO of Dudley CCG; and Haidar Samiei, Clinical Director of EMIS Health

3.4 Breakout session: Theory into practice – How can the NHS harness the power of clinicians and accountants to deliver value?

The concept of ‘value’ in healthcare – maximising the outcomes which matter to people at the lowest possible cost – is increasingly seen as a key lever for supporting the delivery of high quality sustainable healthcare. The challenge is how to do this in practice. This session provided a national perspective and discussed how clinical and finance staff in two acute trusts in England, with support from HFMA’s Healthcare Costing for Value Institute, set about translating the theory of value into practice. It explored the key components of value – health outcomes and patient level costs – and describe the challenges facing the NHS if greater value is to be unlocked.

Speakers: Mark Orchard, Director of Finance of Poole Hospital NHS FT and President of HFMA; Duncan Orme, Deputy Finance Director of Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust; and Dr Jean MacLeod, Consultant Physician in Medicine and Diabetes of University Hospitals of North Tees and Hartlepool  4.2 Breakout session: Navigating the journey to accountable care systems

This session brought together a panel of innovators who are on, or who have been on, the journey to accountable care. Taking an in-depth look at population health programmes and processes that can have maximum impact, our panel shared experiences on how to redesign, innovate and adapt to the changing needs of populations, the tools needed to support the transition and how to cover challenges in data, technology, workforce and incentives on the journey. The session included opportunities to ask questions, share experiences and learn more about the capabilities required to support the necessary change at all levels.

Speakers: David Orbuch, Managing Director of Optum UK; Jonathon W. Bunker, International Advisor of Optum UK; Dame Barbara Hakin, Health Services Advisor 
Dr James Kingsland, President of National Association of Primary Care; Dr Miles Langdon, Chief Medical Officer and GP Partner of Lakeside Healthcare Group; and Dr Martin McShane, Chief Medical Officer of Clinical Delivery of Optum UK
