The NCAS conference is a key event in the health and social care diary. It brings together health and care leaders and policy makers from across local and central government, voluntary and private sectors.
This year, the conference takes place between Wednesday 24 and Friday 26 October at the Devonshire Park Centre in Eastbourne. A full programme and details of confirmed speakers are available on the conference webpage.
If you are attending this year’s NCAS Conference, please come and join us on the Department of Health’s stand (number 42) to find out more about our work, meet those who are working directly on policy and hear more about our new ministerial team.
In addition to the programme of plenary sessions and workshops, we’re also running a series of ‘mini masterclasses’ on our stand. These will be short, informal, drop-in sessions covering a range of current issues and priority policy areas, including:
- An overview of the draft Care and Support Bill
- Improving the quality of dementia care
- Shared leadership – what’s your contribution?
For those who aren’t attending the conference but are still interested in finding out about the Department’s policies, please follow us on Twitter where we’ll be tweeting live over the three days and signposting further information on our Facebook page:
