HSJ has teamed up with the Healthcare Commission and a range of key organisations to develop a conference bringing you clarification as to what exactly will be required of Trusts under the new Developmental Standards.

On 31st October, after months of consultation and evaluation, the Healthcare Commission’s Developmental Standards Team will finally be in a position to provide you with the definitive guidance you have been waiting for.

What you will learn

With explanation from the key individuals concerned and case studies from Trusts implementing the standards, this essential conference will provide delegates with:

- Clear guidance and practical tips for implementing the Developmental Standards
- An evaluation of this year’s assessment process and an update on how things will change for next year
- Strategies and tools for reducing the administrative burden of assessment and inspection
- Clarification on the specific challenges of assessment for reconfiguring PCTs
- Guidance on using the Standards as a tool for driving service improvement rather than just a box-ticking exercise

The conference includes interactive workshops, giving you the chance to put your specific concerns directly to those in the know.

Key speakers include:

Paul Williamson, Lead for Developmental Standards, Healthcare Commission
Gary Needle, Head of Improvement Programme, Healthcare Commission
Sir Thomas Boyd-Carpenter, Chairman, Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Professor Ellie Scrivens, Director, Healthcare Standards Unit

Plus case studies from: NHS East of England, Lancashire Care NHS Trust, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust & an update from an ongoing Developmental Standards pilot site
