23rd March 2016, 10am – 4pm, London Met
The last few years have seen dramatic changes to the way health and social care services are structured and funded. The health needs of the population are changing and growing more complex but there are increasing scientific and technological opportunities to support patients and their carers. The NHS’s Five Year Forward View has a key focus on prevention and patient centred interventions but what are the opportunities for the VCS, policy makers and commissioners in terms of co-producing and commissioning new models of care interventions?
On the 23rd March LVSC and London for All held and all day conference to consider some of the challenges and opportunities for VCSE and Statutory bodies to work together to design and deliver services to improve the health of Londoners.
- Raise awareness of the opportunities for the VCSE, patient bodies and their members to co-produce and influence health and care policy and initiatives especially relating to the New Models of Care.
- Provide opportunities for commissioners, including CCGs and policy makers to better understand the work, role and added value of the VCSE in co-producing, designing and delivering services at a local and regional level.
- Identify the gaps and barriers to effective cross sector working in the design, commissioning and evaluation of services in London
- Agree recommendations and actions to enable more effective design, commissioning and evaluation of services in London

New models of care: working together for a healthy London: Interim Report
The research in this report has been undertaken by the London for All programme manager as a contribution to the ‘New Models of Care’ event held at London Metropolitan University on 23 March 2016. The objectives of the research were twofold:
- explore the experience of voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector health practitioners with regard to their support needs at a local, regional and national level.
- consider current and future measures to ensure the long term effectiveness of support at the local, regional and national level and the opportunities for collective action by the VCSE sector, to achieve this.
The motivation for the research springs from the core aim of London for All, to strengthen voluntary and community sector capacity. In particular the research recognises the challenges of austerity and seeks to develop collective strategies to enhance VCSE action.
