To tackle the scale and prevalence of long-term conditions will require service transformation, integration of care and innovative systems. The NHS Mandate set out plans to help people with long-term conditions live healthily and independently.

What progress has been made to ensure that people have the skills to manage their own health, that they have a care plan that is based on their personal needs and that the care they receive is coordinated?

Andy Bell, our Deputy chief Executive, will be speaking at this conference.
