Date change for Norfolk County Council workshops in Great Yarmouth

The date for the 'working together to support hospital discharges' workshops in Great Yarmouth has changed

The original date for the Great Yarmouth sessions was April 4th and this has now been changed to 19th April. The time has now changed. See the amended story below.


The Norfolk County Council Adult Social Care market development team are supporting a series of workshops bringing together social care, health and other professionals with key providers in the care market to work together on improving our joint performance in two key areas of operation.

Workshop 1: Supporting hospital discharges and developing 7 day support

NCC would like to invite you to join their key hospital discharge professionals in a workshop to help develop practical proposals that they can implement to improve their current discharge performance in the short term. NCC also want to scope out areas for development that will improve matters further in the medium to longer term and prepare the market to enable it to support hospital discharges 7 days a week. They also want to agree how they and providers can best continue to work together after the workshop to genuinely coproduce the solutions that the system and the market will need going forward.

26 March 2018, 9:30-12:00, Abbey Conference Centre, Norwich

4 April 2018, 11:00-13:30, Kings Centre, Great Yarmouth

Workshop 2: Nursing care workforce challenges

NCC also recognise that there are pressures on the independent sector adult care workforce in general and in particular in the nursing home sector where recruitment and retention of staff together with sustaining quality have become very challenging. They are planning therefore to hold a second workshop on the same day following on from the Supporting Discharge workshop focusing on Nursing Workforce Challenges.

NCC invite providers active in this sector or those planning to be so, to join them in a session intended to understand the scale and nature of the workforce challenges, and to develop practical ways in which the health and care system can support improvements in the short term and also to coproduce a longer term improvement plan that they can implement to ensure that they have a long term stable supply of good quality nursing care in Norfolk.

Providers in the nursing sector are invited to the Nursing Workforce Challenge workshops, including providers who have taken part in the Supporting Discharge workshop who are in the nursing care sector.
