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.

Further to the successful delivery of the series of bite size one-hour sessions introducing the world of an ICS, Local Government/Adult Social Care, Primary Care and PCN and the Voluntary, Community, Social Enterprise and Faith we are now pleased to bring you a new series for 2022.

These are a range of interactive sessions to support you as leaders. These bite size sessions will help you gain insight into the challenges and perspectives of different colleagues as you continue to deliver and develop services but also support recovery for patients and staff in the context of the statutory establishment of Integrated Care Systems from July 2022.

This year’s series will cover:

•             Public Health and Public Health Management

•             Care Homes / Domiciliary care

•             Mental Health community services for children and adults

•             What is it like to work at place level – hear from several “places” from across the East of England

Access to these sessions will be via Zoom.

Our first sessions will explore Place Based Working with colleagues from 3 different ICSs across the East of England. We will be joined by 3 experienced Place leaders, who will share the challenges and opportunities of working with communities, local government, VCSE, NHS and broader system colleagues to drive improvement and integration in local services as well as improving health and wellbeing.
