12:20pm NHS England
Better joint working at the health and social care interface is vital to improving outcomes, but our attempts so far have often failed to recognise the pivotal role patients themselves can play in integrating their own care.
NHS England is writing a vision paper for the NHS ten year plan, which describes how personalised care improves experience for people and the workforce, outcomes for people, and benefits the system.
This session will detail NHS England’s commitments for delivering personalised care for the next ten years; and will set out how it needs to work in partnership with local government to boost integrated personal commissioning to create holistic and personalised care around the needs and preferences of people who rely most on the ongoing support from health and care services.
1:15pm Easy to say, difficult to do: implementing a strengths based model of care in Cornwall
In this workshop, Cornwall will tell their story of how they are practically implementing a strengths based model of care – and the impact it is having on staff, service users and their financial position. They will share the lessons they have learnt and challenges they have faced when implementing the model, so that other local authorities can understand how they might practically get the most of the practice model in their own organisation.

Versus Arthritis – Adapted Homes, Empowered Lives: how can we improve access to aids and home adaptations?
Aids and adaptations in the home can be the difference between dependence and independence for someone with arthritis. So why do people find it so hard to access good quality home adaptations? Versus Arthritis have written a report that explores the impact home aids and adaptations have on the quality of life for people with musculoskeletal conditions; and explores their experiences in accessing aids and adaptations from local authorities. With the report to be published in the coming months, in this session we will look at some of the key findings that emerged, and explore together practical ways in which to improve access to life-changing aids and home adaptations.
