Raj Jain, who is chief executive of Northern Care Alliance (Salford Royal Foundation Trust and Pennine Acute Hospitals Trust), discussed 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 were 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  supported the event.

In a panel discussion chaired by HSJ contributor Claire Read, they considered what the future of community services could and should look like. The event also explored 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 was entirely free to join, took place on Tuesday 20 April from 10.30am-11.15am.
