The Integrated Care Summit: Challenges and Best Practice

The Convenzis Integrated Care Summit provides a secure and high-value platform for NHS Managers and leaders to meet, share practical insights, and listen to some of the sector's most reputable and thought-provoking experts. In support of the NHS, registration is complimentary and CPD accredited.

NHS England explains that ICSs are partnerships of health and care organisations that come together to plan and deliver joined-up services, and to improve the health, of people who live and work in their area.

They exist to achieve three main aims:

  • Improve outcomes in population health and healthcare
  • Tackle inequalities in outcomes, experience and access
  • Enhance productivity and value for money

Integrated care is about giving people the support they need, joining up across local councils, the NHS, and other partners. It removes traditional divisions between hospitals and family doctors, between physical and mental health, and between NHS and council services.

ICSs (integrated care systems) are seen by NHS leaders as the future of health and care integration in England. The NHS Long Term Plan, and now the Government’s white paper on health and care reform, both place ICSs at the heart of the NHS.

Our upcoming event will provide NHS healthcare leaders from across primary, social and secondary care sectors with a secure and high-value platform to discuss the key challenges and benefits of the integrated care strategy.

This event will showcase some examples of best practices from teams across the NHS and provide you with a platform to meet and engage with 5 commercial sectors thought leaders as they share innovative services and solutions with delegates across the day.

Workforce and clinical transformation through partnership working

Courtney Attewell
Commercial Manager
L&R Medical
Wound care accounts for around 50% of the community nursing workload. Find out how South West Yorkshire Partnership Trust partnered with L&R to implement a self care model to improve leg ulcer service provision. The model reduced the demand on workforce capacity, improved service efficiencies and reduced patient contact to once every 6 weeks.


ICS Digital Strategy – The future of sustainable health and care services?

Claire Darbyshire
Head of Social Care & Health Technology
The rapid evolution of technology will significantly influence how we interact with our own health and wellbeing. Technology which in the past was only available in hospitals is increasingly available in our homes. It provides us with a wide range of information, access to resources and connects us and our health and wellbeing observations to personal networks and professional support. Our personal fascination with technology will provide opportunity for population health, prevention and early intervention programmes a significant opportunity to resolve demand challenges and create an approach which rebalances proactive and reactive service delivery. Join this session to explore innovation in 2022 and the challenges of implementing digital solutions for sustainable health and supportive care delivery in the ICS landscape.

The 4th principle of the ICS relates to supporting broader socio-economic development. This is key if ICSs are to make any real impact on Health Inequalities.

We continue to have great discussions and footfall around our stand with no need to try and encourage people to come and see us. Really positive event for us and we look forward to working with Convenzis in the future.

My colleague and I presented at the NHS workforce conference 2023, 19 September. The support and guidance we received from the Convenzis team in the run up to our presentation slot was great, well timed and perfectly pitched. The event itself, again was expertly organised. The conference was well Chaired by Sean, who was very engaging. As an audience member as well as a panel member, I would definitely work with the Convenzis team again.

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!
