This year’s national lay member event will focus on the role of CCG lay members in place-based systems of care and will provide an opportunity to network, share best practices, and engage with system leaders on what the changing commissioning landscape means for you as a lay member.
With four weeks to go until the event, we’re pleased to announce the programme and share some highlights of the day:
STP governance and engagement
Key Note speaker: Ravi Baghirathan, Deputy Director – Strategy Group, NHS England
Ravi will discuss progress with STPs and the role of CCG lay members in supporting their delivery, and answer your questions on the next steps for the implementation.
Panel discussion: Ensuring that STPs reflect the public voice
Panellists will discuss and engage in a Q&A on public engagement and governance processes for delivering plans and the questions that remain about assurance and scrutiny.
Managing Conflicts of Interest
Key Note speaker: Professor Sir Malcolm Grant, CBE, Chair, NHS England Board
A conversation with Sir Malcolm Grant on the outcomes of the recent consultation on managing conflicts of interest in the NHS and what this means for CCGs.
In breakout sessions you’ll have the chance to connect and engage with peers over common challenges and experiences related to patient and public involvement and audit and governance.
Making difficult decisions and prioritisation
This session will provide case study examples to help equip lay members to better engage with broader communities in a place, particularly around service change and transformation.
