Westminster Health Forum policy conference announces Webinar for Older People’s Care

Next steps for improving older people’s care – integration, managing the impact of COVID-19, and driving forward preventative healthcare

Dateline Morning, Wednesday, 28th April 2021

The conference will be an opportunity to assess proposed reforms affecting the future care of older people in the Government’s Integration and innovation: working together to improve health and social care for all white paper.

Delegates will also consider what can be learned from the management of care through the pandemic – and the policy support required to tackle the critical challenges currently being faced around community support, integrated care, and managing and preventing long-term conditions.

Areas for discussion include:

• progress on integrated care systems and community care – and the potential impact of proposals in the Future of Health and Care white paper
• rollout of urgent rapid response teams and reducing the length of hospital admissions
• delivery of care during the COVID-19 crisis, and the vaccination programme
• digital remote management of long-term conditions
• self-funding of older people’s care
• prevention, including weight management services
• tackling loneliness

The discussion is bringing together stakeholders with key policy officials who are due to attend from DHSC and The Scottish Government; as well as parliamentary pass-holders from the House of Lords.
