With an additional £4.5bn announced for primary and community health services over the next five years in the NHS Long Term Plan, community healthcare is without doubt having its moment. But will money alone be enough to put community services on more sustainable footing after years of being seen as the health sector’s poorer cousin? This session will look at how the health sector can help translate the warm words around community health into concrete actions; what commissioners need to do to get the best possible providers to deliver community care in integrated systems and what impact the NHS’ potential legislative changes could have on the sector.
