2.    To discuss existing good practice in LAs, Health and Community and Voluntary Sector organisations’ information and advice systems and new possible developments that could support future reforms

3.    To share progress and updates on the Better Care Fund, Technology Fund and the Integration Pioneers in order to ensure that Social Care Informatics services can make best use of all available opportunities
