Everyone's 2012: The Northwest annual 2012 conference

23 July 2010 09:15 - 15:00

Old Trafford Cricket Ground, Lancashire County Cricket Club, Manchester

England’s Northwest is fully committed to playing a full part in the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, creating lasting positive legacies from the many opportunities presented.

This annual conference is aimed at all policy makers and practitioners interested in capitalising on the sporting, social and economic benefits generated through London 2012. The conference provides an opportunity to find out how the Northwest is working to maximise the benefits of The Games and for us to celebrate the achievements of our journey to 2012 so far. It will also outline the programmes that will be delivered over the next 12 months and how everyone in the Northwest can get involved in being a part of the 2012 legacy.

Keynote speakers include Charles Allen, Chair of the London 2012 Nations and Regions Group, Andy Worthington, Chair of the NW Steering Group for the 2012 Games, Peter Hensman, NWDA Board Member and Mike Farrar, Chief Executive of NHS Northwest. The conference will also involve a series of breakout sessions offering the chance for delegates to engage in further debate on topics of particular interest.

Survey launched: Is the NHS Standard Contract a barrier to commissioning VCSE organisations?

 We have been told that VCSE organisations find the NHS Standard Contract a barrier to having their services commissioned by the NHS.  Consequently NHS chief, Simon Stevens, committed to exploring a shorter version of the NHS Standard Contract for low-value contracts, in the NHS Five Year Forward View.

Regional Voices, working with NHS England, is carrying out this survey to help understand specific issues which organisations have experienced in using the NHS Standard Contract. We expect the survey to take no more than 15 minutes. The survey will close at 10am on 27 July.

Take the survey about the NHS Standard Contract for VCSE organisations.

More information about VCSE commissioning issues in health and wellbeing and the background to this work on the Standard Contract.

NHS England will undertake its annual, wider, consultation in preparation for the 2016/17 Contract later this year, which VCSE organisations will also be invited to participate in.

If you have any queries about this survey, or would like any support filling it in, contact Emma Baylin or Yoshiko Stokoe on 0113 394 2300 or email emma.baylin@involveyorkshirehumber.org.ukwww.regionalvoices.org/NHSStandardContract
