Marketing Events

We lead on the strategic commissioning of Adult Social Care provision in Cornwall. We work closely with partners across the NHS, private, voluntary and independent sector to coordinate and improve the Adult Social Care experience in Cornwall, including integrating community led and Council led services.  We are also joint partners with the NHS taking forward the Sustainability and Transformation Plan for Cornwall.

An initial event was held with providers to begin conversations to consider how we do things differently with regard to care and support in Cornwall. The aim of the session was to consider what works, the challenges and how we can do things differently to support positive outcomes.
