Tuesday 20 April 2021, 10.30am-11.15am

Raj Jain, who is chief executive of Northern Care Alliance (Salford Royal Foundation Trust and Pennine Acute Hospitals Trust), will discuss the interconnectedness between the community and acute services his organisation provides – and how the pandemic has further influenced this.

Joining him in offering insight on how the NHS can make the most of its community provision are Crystal Oldman, chief executive of the Queen’s Nursing Institute; Clara Gilfillan, operational lead for community nursing at Anglian Community Enterprise; and Róisín Reade, clinical lead at Malinko – which is supporting the event.

In a panel discussion chaired by HSJ contributor Claire Read, they will consider what the future of community services could and should look like. The event will also explore how efficient delivery of such services can be supported, what role technology might play, and consider whether the impending statutory basis of integrated care systems might make a difference here.

The event, which is entirely free to join, takes place on Tuesday 20 April from 10.30am-11.15am. To register for the live event, or for access to the on demand that will subsequently be made available, visit here
