South West Public Health Training Programme

Health and Social Care collaboration and integration, including Manchester devolution and personalised commissioning

Wednesday 19th October in Bristol

Deanery House, Vantage Office Park, Old Gloucester Road, Hambrook, Bristol, BS34 6PT


This session is designed to help public health registrars develop a better understanding of devolution and the integration of health and social care, and what this means for public health. Speakers from different organisations have been selected to provide a range of perspectives. We will be considering some of the key legislation and policies that are driving devolution and integration forward, and looking at some case studies of how integration and devolution is being achieved.

The learning objectives for the day are:

-          To help understand the driving forces behind integration of health and social care and devolution

-          Provide an overview of the main legislation and policies that are driving change

-          To develop an understanding of the roles and perspectives of a range of health and social care organisations

-          To reflect on the opportunities and threats this rapidly changing environment may hold for public health

-          Discuss the role public health registrars can play in shaping the future of health and social care
