  • Wednesday, 29 October 2014
  • America Square Conference Centre, London
  • 08:30 - 16:45
  • Overview

The Tackling Long-Term Conditions: Coordinating Care, Delivering Improvements conference will closely follow the NHS Outcomes Framework, it is a key objective to enhance the quality of life for people with on-going health problems across six improvement areas.

Delivering service improvements and enhancing the quality of life for people with on-going health problems is a key priority for the NHS. Care of people with long term conditions accounts for 70% of the money that we spend on health and social care in England. More than 15 million people have a long-term condition, with the most prevalent conditions being hypertension, depression and asthma. This figure is set to increase even further over the next 10 years. The sustainability of our health services depends on a new approach to tackling long-term conditions. The NHS Mandate set out plans to help people with long-term conditions live healthily and independently. What progress has been made to ensure that people have the skills to manage their own health, that they have a care plan that is based on their personal needs and that the care they receive is coordinated?

A whole system approach is required to tackle the scale and prevalence of long-term conditions. It will require service transformation, integration of care and innovative systems to meet the pressing challenge. At Tackling Long-Term Conditions: Coordinating Care, Transforming Services our expert speakers will explore how to drive improvements in care, coordinate services to achieve quality outcomes and help make life better for people with long term conditions.
