Partnerships between health and local authorities remain high profile in government policy to achieve improved commissioning and better service outcomes. This CSIP and NHS Networks event enables people involved in integrating health and social care at all levels to receive a common perspective on key policy issues from a range of high quality speakers. It also provides an excellent opportunity to engage in stimulating discussion, sharing ideas and approaches through participation in workshops and small group activities encouraging the sharing of knowledge.
