Delegates assessed the impact of proposals set out by the Ministerial Strategic Group and the Accounts Commission - in the areas of leadership, long term financial planning, governance, and external engagement - on meeting aims to improve and quicken the integration process.
Those attending looked at governance and accountability issues facing integrated authorities (IAs). It came with calls for the accountability process to be streamlined, greater support for integration of joint board chairs, and a greater understanding of where the responsibility for decisions lie. They also considered the long term financial strategies for IAs following a series of practical recommendations from the Ministerial Strategic Group.
There was further discussion on the challenges faced by regulators. This included improving standards, outcome goals, and using data to drive change.
Further sessions assessed the next steps for developing external engagement, particularly in ensuring the involvement of health practitioners, service users and the third sector in decision-making processes and delivery of care.
