Making it work for everyone

Coordinating Social & Health Care at the End of Life

Why this conference

With the new Care Act 2014 due to be implemented in 2015, how will regulations and guidance

support the implementation of the Act, and what do local authorities need to put in place to

ensure the Act works in practice to support those at the end of life

Social care and health care need to be co-ordinated (rather than “integrated”) to give people at

the end of life the best possible death; yet we know that too often this isn’t the case. The two

systems remain separated by funding, yet are expected to work together more closely than

ever, within the challenge of limited resources. Join us to hear about how the two systems can

do this.

This conference will...

Enable you to hear from services who are working together well locally to provide good care and

support to people at the end of life; and consider the challenges of how things ought to work.
