A Reflection on the Health + Care Conference 2015

September 2015

Once a year, the Health + Care Conference, the biggest of its kind in the UK, brings together commissioners, providers, politicians, and others from all over the country and beyond to facilitate discussions around some of the pressing issues facing the sectors, and promote best practice.


In this short paper, we want to capture some of the conference’s main debates and share some of the examples of innovative approaches to health and social care that inspired GGI.

Starting with a reflection on the key debates of the conference, this paper will look at aspects of integration, including links between health and other social policies such as housing, the role of data and IT, and physical and mental health integration.

Emphasising the prominence of localism, we will also describe a number of examples where these different aspects of integration have been incorporated into local action plans.
