Provider Forums: 2019 dates for your diary

Warwickshire County Council holds quarterly Provider Forums to enable the local authority and their partners to meet together to network, share and discuss operational issues relating to service provision.

It also provides an opportunity for strategic partners to deliver key messages to all contracted providers.

This can include commissioning updates, new health initiatives and provider case studies.

WCC currently facilitates a number of Provider Forums, including Accommodation with Support (Care Homes), a Learning Disability Providers Forum and Domiciliary Care Provider Forums.

Attendance at forums is an important way in which providers can engage with commissioners and their peers, and to receive valuable updates to help them continue to provide high quality services for their residents.

To help with your planning, the following dates are for your diaries.

Please let us know if there are any particular topics you would like covered on the agenda.

We also always look for providers to showcase examples of good practice and positive outcomes to their peers at the forums; this could be about, for example, any recent training accreditation or an example of how you engage with the local community to benefit residents’ wellbeing. If you would like to do so please get in touch.

Previous agenda items have included:

  • Dementia Leaders Role
  • Positive Behaviour Support Plans
  • Infection control
  • Hospital to home service
  • FNC/CHC assessments

Commissioners will confirm meeting agendas and further Forums details with providers by email prior to the meeting date.
