NCAS 2016: Meet NHS England’s Better Care Support team and give your feedback!

Meet and greet: Wednesday 2 November, 1.15 – 2.15pm, DH Lounge (E30)

Members of the Better Care Support team (BCST) will be attending this year’s National Children and Adults Services Conference (NCAS) on Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd November.

Rosie Seymour, Deputy Programme Director and Jane Lord, Regional Relationship Manager, will be holding a ‘meet the team’ session in the DH lounge on Wednesday 2 November between 1.15pm - 2.15pm.

It’s your opportunity to ask questions and discuss developments in the Better Care Fund (BCF) planning and assurance process for 2017/18 and 2018/19.

The team also want your feedback on their planned Better Care Support offer. They are already planning thematic masterclasses, regional networking events and multidisciplinary consultancy sessions.

In addition, they’ll be deploying Better Care Advisors to provide consultancy to local areas needing support with planning assurance and BCF implementation.

So come to the DH Lounge and tell them what you need and why!
