This timely seminar will provide an opportunity to assess future policy priorities for people with learning disabilities and/or autism across health and social care.

Delegates will consider key issues outlined in NHS England, ADASS and the LGA's Building the Right Support plan, which aims to reduce the reliance on inpatient care, establish a new service model by 2019 and create joined-up Transforming Care Partnerships for health and social care commissioners locally.

Further sessions focus on plans outlined in the Department of Health response to the No Voice Unheard, No Right Ignored consultation, which included proposals for a named social worker and potential amendments to regulations in the Mental Health Act 1983. The agenda also looks at next steps for developing the workforce, and challenges for integrating and personalising care for people with learning disabilities through the use of personal budgets and the Integrated Personal Commissioning programme.

At this early stage, we are delighted to be able to include at this seminar keynote addresses from Dr Dominic Slowie, National Clinical Director for Learning Disabilities, NHS England and Chair, North East and Cumbria Learning Disability Network; Sir Stephen Bubb, Chief Executive, ACEVO and Dr Paul Lelliott, Deputy Chief Inspector of Hospitals and Lead on Mental Health, CQC.
