There is much anxiety in Local Authority Land around the near collapse of our social care systems


© CLGdotTV 2018

Huge, post 2010, austerity-driven funding cuts are now threatening the entire social care structure.

Champions of social care have pointed out that unless the (poorly understood) social care system is properly funded the (much worshiped) NHS will continue to struggle to meet demand. Focusing on the threat to the NHS might just prise out more funds for social care.

But many of our best thinkers and practitioners are already looking (and acting) way beyond the short term solution of propping up our disjointed, dysfunctional, not fit for purpose health & social care systems.

An Audience With CLGdotTV No.3  on the future of Social Care (Central London - 23rd October  will bring some of these radical thinkers and leaders together to make six CLGdotTV programmes with added value from a live, lively and informed studio audience.

  • Integrating health & social care: news from Leeds
  • Essex County Council: interventions to accelerate hospital discharge
  • Supporting our fragile care provider market
  • Outcomes based commissioning: a truly user-focused approach
  • The Government Green Paper
  • The digital opportunity: doing different things, not the same things differently

The programmes, including those vital contributions from our expert studio audience, will be available simultaneously as dotTV programmes and as podcasts on CLGdotTV from 24th October onwards. An Audience with CLGdotTV No.3 will include

Alistair Walling GP on the health & social care integration programme in Leeds

The Rt Hon Paul Burstow, former Minister for Care who chairs the Tavistock and Portman NHS FT and Social Care Institute for Excellence and the TEC Services Association

An Audience with CLGdotTV No.3 Ocober 23rd 2018 - Health and Social Care

An Audience with CLGdotTV takes place four times a year. We invite a studio audience of around 50 to share a day making CLGdotTV programmes. We make six programmes in one day. No.3 will feature six expert-led discussions/debates reviewing developments in the provision of health and social care. A seat ion one of the panels or in the audience is by invitation. Guests can come for an hour and join in making a single programme or come for the day and star in the lot. The programmes will be available on-demand and free to view from our CLGdotTV platforms and may also be linked to from sponsors websites.

It all happens at 58 Victoria Embankment (the NESTA building) two minutes walk from London Blackfriars Station. Cameras are rolling by 10.30am and it's all over bar the handshakes by 4.30pm. Lunch and refreshments? Of course but let’s be frank, it’s the quality of the brain food not the sandwiches that make this the single most useful TV forum available to those shaping the future of health and social care in UK
