The NHS Confederation will be hosting a number of fringe events at the Labour party conference.

There will be two panel discussions which are open to Confederation members to attend and put forward their views and questions to the panels. The Mental Health Network is also hosting a session to examine good practice between charities and the statutory mental health sector.

The venue, Jury’s Inn Brighton Waterfront, is outside of the secure zone of the Labour Party Conference.

If you would like to submit a question to one of our panels, or would like any further information about this event, please contact victoria.fowler@nhsconfed.org

The NHS and third sector: Delivering change for mental health

11.30-12.30
Renaissance suite. Please arrive 10 minutes prior to event start time.

High quality mental health services that provide care for people with a variety of needs cannot be delivered without genuine partnership between the NHS and third sector. In many areas the sectors work together to provide personalised care across a range of settings, with charities large and small adding value and expertise around supported housing, crisis care, culturally specific services and much more. This session will examine good practice between charities and the statutory mental health sector and explore how the relationships between sectors can be built on to ultimately improve patient outcomes.

During the session we will hear from:

  • Sophie Corlett (Director of External Relations, Mind)
  • Mel Shad (Head of Business Development, Choice Support, Social Care Charity) 
  • Mick Tutt (Deputy-Chair, Solent NHS Trust)
  • Louis Allwood (Business Development Lead, Centre for Mental Health)
