There’s no doubt about the big issues at the interface of health and social care at the moment: the parlous finances, and the programme of integration, potentially in the context of devolution.
Naturally the CIPFA Health and Social Care Conference, which takes place in London this year on 13 October 2016, will deal with relevant issues: Richard Humphries from the King’s Fund will assess the state of social care finance and its consequences for the NHS; Professor Matthew Cripps will set out the thinking behind what – together with the Carter Report – is the biggest strand of potential savings action in the NHS; and we will pick up integration learning from Scotland and Wales’ more advanced positions.

The programme is currently being finalised, but at present the current plan is as follows.
