New alliances – dissolving the divide between acute/community and primary care
This session will explore how some areas are putting aside the silo working of the past and developing new, productive relationships across sectors, based around population health needs. The result will be the creation – for the first time since the NHS was set up in 1948 – of fully integrated community-based healthcare. Developing new ways of working across different types of organisation presents challenges as well as the opportunity to deliver better care for patients. The panel will share their experiences and learning on how to develop new effective alliances across acute, community and primary care.
