In one week’s time, the NHS Health and Care Innovation Expo 2015 will officially be open.
Considered the main event in the health and social care calendar, 5000 people are expected to visit Manchester’s Convention Centre each day, to learn and share ideas and innovations that can transform the health service both now and in the future.
The Coalition for Collaborative Care will have a strong presence at this year’s event. We will have a stand (number seven), where people can come and learn more about the work we are doing and plan to do, and how they can help.
On day one, Wednesday 2 September, at 2pm, we will be hosting a pop-up university session at Pop Up Uni 2 on C4CC and how we are working towards a better deal for people with long-term conditions. This session will be run by Catherine Wilton, C4CC Deputy Director, Trevor Fossey, C4CC Co-production group member and Keymn Whervin, Expo People’s Panel Member.
Also on day one at 3pm, C4CC Director, Martin Routledge will be chairing a pop up university session at Pop Up Uni 9 on New Care Models: new ways of delivering prevention and self-care services for patients.
On the second day, Thursday 3 September at 10am, we will be hosting a panel session on the Innovate Stage with Dr Martin McShane, National Medical Director, NHS England, Martin Routledge, Director C4CC, Dr Karen Eastman, Clinical Director Long-Term Conditions, Health and Wellbeing Board and Planned Care, Horsham and Mid-Sussex CCG, Kirit Mistry, Expo People’s Panel member and Christine Morgan, C4CC Co-production group member.
