Contracting for new care models

8 January 2018
Creative use of the contracting process is a critical factor in making new models of care happen. Without bold, robust contracting the theoretical benefits of more efficient, better integrated and higher quality care systems will not be realised.
 
This event provides updates on the rapidly evolving policy and contracting arrangements for MCPs and accountable care systems. Delivered by lawyers from Hill Dickinson who are working with areas that are starting to implement the new contracts, the event provides case studies and learning from around the country. It also demystifies the new jargon that surrounds the policy, explaining the difference between ACOs and ACSs, for example.
 
You should attend if you are directly involved in commissioning and contracting new care models or if you want to find out more about the impact of national policy on the development of local integrated care systems.
 
A few places remain on 8 March in London.

NHS Providers looks at the role of community services

23 May 2018

A report from NHS Providers presents examples of good practice where community service providers have successfully developed new ways of working, collaborating with other services to improve patient care.
