The implications of devolution in health

Guest speaker: Warren Heppolette
Strategic Director, Health & Social Care Reform, Greater Manchester Devolution

Health devolution burst onto the political and policy agenda earlier this year and the upcoming Chancellor’s Spending Review and Autumn Statement on 25 November will reveal a step change towards greater heath devolution as well as strides towards a Northern Powerhouse.

The implications of this key Government policy are profound. In Greater Manchester alone ten local authorities and twelve CCGs will come together to jointly commission health and social care with a combined budget of £6billion. So what are the political and policy implications of health devolution?

Join Connect’s first Devo-health policy seminar where we will put health devolution under the microscope. We will examine the ground breaking developments in Manchester, Cornwall and elsewhere to devolve responsibility for the NHS and bring together health and social care budgets.

We are delighted that Warren Heppolette Strategic Director, Health & Social Care Reform, Greater Manchester Devolution will be joining us to provide an overview of Manchester’s plans and Steve Barwick, Senior Policy Consultant at Connect will provide an overview of health devolution including latest developments in the Devolution Bill.

Don’t miss this opportunity to take part in our Devo-health policy seminar. The roundtable will take place under the Chatham House rule which means that it will be written up but inputs will not be attributed to named attendees.

Places are on a strict first come first served basis and cost £100 which includes lunch and the write up of the discussion.
