NCAS Conference – live blog, day three

November 4, 2016

NCASc blog

The final day at NCAS Conference. It’s been a fantastic event so far, so looking forward to the final sessions and discussions…

9:00am – Hospital discharge and winter resilience. An apt topic on a drizzly day…

Priority to channel shift and get people out of hospital. A demand management focus with preventative models of care key to this (shift from acute to primary and social care)

10:00am – Improving the health of a population. Opening remarks from Matthew Swindells (NHS England National Director for Commissioning, Operations and Information)

  • Health not just NHS; about education, housing, social care (the whole system)
  • Many patients end up in the wrong part of the system
  • Rethinking care that puts people at the centre

Next up Jon Rouse on the Manchester experience:

  • Key: Greater Manchester is place-based and includes social care gap
  • Interesting: In some cases the evidence base is lacking but we know it’s the right thing to do
  • Focus on asset based community development
  • Commitment to transparency and partnership – crucial if STPs are going to work…

11:33am – social care in the 21st century

  • Dave Hill focuses on the ability/focus of building relationships (although also notes that that is not particularly 21st Century)
  • Margaret Wilcox continues this theme, adding that social workers face ‘the difficult conversation’
  • Austerity has forced innovation (ditto rising demand)
  • Good point – social workers facing new types of challenges: internet abuse, CSE, trafficking. Needs new ways of thinking and new approaches to tackle#
  • Fine line between taking risks and leaving someone vulnerable – extent to which social workers can exercise professional judgement

12:46pm – CQC The State of Care:

A hard-hitting end to the Conference:

1:34pm – and that’s a wrap folks:

There has been a lot to take in and think about; the live blog has only been a small snapshot of the three days. Further blogs, reflections and conclusions to follow…
