‘Ensuring a future’: Healthcare changes, challenges and learning disability services
- Royal College of Nursing (RCN) North West centenary lecture
- 6pm to 9pm on 30 November 2016
- Friends Meeting House, 6 Mount Street, Manchester, M2 5NS
The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) represents and is the voice of nursing – influencing policy and shaping practice locally, across the UK and internationally. With more than 430,000 members, whose knowledge, expertise and opinions contribute to and direct the work of the RCN. Founded in 1916, the RCN is celebrating its centenary and as part of a series of events across England, the North West region is hosting a special public lecture at the end of November.
Healthcare and the NHS is facing an unprecedented period of change with devolution, integration and STPs directly affecting where and how healthcare is delivered. Whilst the impact on acute and community nursing is starting to emerge, very little is known about what the future holds for often forgotten but crucial services like learning disabilities. So this special RCN North West centenary lecture will examine:
- challenges currently facing nursing from devolution and integration;
- the potential impact of change on learning disabilities services, clients, carers and nurses;
- how we can make the voice of clients and carers heard and help shape a better and healthier future for themselves.
- how can devolution enable nursing and others to support people to live fulfilling lives in the community.
These issues will be discussed by Estephanie Dunn, Regional Director for the RCN in the North West and other healthcare speakers (to be confirmed).
Afterwards there will be a chance to put questions to a round table discussion as well as an opportunity to network and discuss the issues.
This FREE event is open to, nurses, Health Practitioners and other health and social care professionals from across Greater Manchester as well as interested members of the public.
