There is widespread consensus on the need for more integrated care. The divisions between health and social care lead to confusion for people who rely on these services, excessive pressure on hospitals and too little investment in preventative or at-home support. As more people live into old age and experience multiple complex and long-term conditions, these problems are set to worsen.
Our panel will discuss ways in which the next government can integrate health and social care and provide the necessary funding for these services post-2015. They will explore the changes needed to cope with the increased pressures of an ageing population and continued public spending constraints.
This event will bring together influential voices and practitioners from across the health, social care and political spectrum.
