Population-based health and care – devolution as a model for London
As a company built on partnership working, UCLPartners brings together organisations to transform systems of health and care for the benefit of patients and populations.
To support this and facilitate engagement and discussion about how population-based, or “place-based” systems of care can improve outcomes for patients and create efficiency savings, UCLPartners brought together more than 120 colleagues from local authorities, the NHS, social care, think tanks, the voluntary sector and academia at an event held at City Hall in May.
Organised in collaboration with London Councils and Healthy London Partnerships and supported by the Health Foundation, the event aimed to create a lively debate and share learning on what is needed for true integration across health and social care.
Three videos from the event are now available, providing highlights from the talks on ‘Improving outcomes and value in London through population-based systems of care”, the panel discussion on ‘removing the barriers to enable transformation’ and soundbites from our speakers and attendees.
The need to use evidence to identify opportunities that will make the biggest difference to wellbeing and population health, and using every pound for the best impact and outcome, came across loud and clear during the event. This is supported in our latest report, launched at the event – How can local health economies improve population health and produce efficiency savings in the short to medium term?
