The last few years have seen dramatic changes to the way health and social care services are structured and funded. The health needs of the population are changing and growing more complex but there are increasing scientific and technological opportunities to support patients and their carers. The NHS's Five Year Forward View has a key focus on prevention and patient centred interventions but what are the opportunities for the VCS, policy makers and commissioners in terms of co-producing and commissioning new models of care interventions?
On the 23rd March LVSC and London for All held and all day conference to consider some of the challenges and opportunities for VCSE and Statutory bodies to work together to design and deliver services to improve the health of Londoners.
