Understanding The World of…

The East of England Leadership Academy in partnership with Tricordant has developed a range of interactive sessions to support you as leaders working on the Integrated Care agenda to understand the world of your partners across heath, care, voluntary, community, social enterprise and faith sector. 

We recognise there are significant and unique challenges facing transformation leaders in 2021: reset and recovery requirements, the ongoing pandemic, the backlog of waiting patients, increasing unmet need, an exhausted workforce, and of course, legislative change and associated restructure of NHS bodies including the planned statutory establishment of Integrated Care Systems from April 2022.

These sessions will give you an opportunity to hear from leaders operating within Integrated Care Systems, Primary Care, Local Authority /Adult Social Care as well as the Voluntary, Community, Social Enterprise and Faith sector.    

Join us on the following dates to hear from colleagues across the East of England discuss. Please click on the date and time to be taken through to the booking page:
