Flexible working: good for people, places and populations

What will an integrated care system (ICS) workforce look like and how and where will its people work? How can the NHS innovate its approach to recruitment and retention to achieve collaborative, person-centred care in the ICS era?

These and other key questions will be debated at The King’s Fund’s Integrated care in practice conference, proudly sponsored by NHS Professionals.

This year will see ICSs being formally established across England.  Health and social care bodies will have a historic opportunity to transform services by working more closely together than ever before.

The ICS model is also an exciting opportunity for health and care professionals to broaden their skills and experience.  It also has significant potential to enhance wellbeing by working more flexibly across services and organisational boundaries.

As the leading provider of flexible staff to the NHS, with more than 180,000 Bank Members and 50+ client Trusts, NHS Professionals is fully committed to supporting the ICS agenda and has already begun a flexible workforce pilot with an ICS in the south of England.

During the event, we will be taking part in a panel session considering how can flexible working help us to deliver for people, places and populations.  We look forward to sharing what we’ve learnt so far and hearing more about other positive work taking place across the country ahead of the ICS go-live this summer.
