Enhanced Community Care Conference 2022

Enhanced Community Care Conference 2022

On 1st September 2022 the HSE and the Department of Health hosted the Enhanced Community Care Conference 2022.

The event brought together nearly 700 colleagues in person and online from all over the country to mark progress on implementing the Enhanced Community Care Programme.

Attendees heard from senior colleagues in the HSE, expert speakers working in integrated care, including the keynote speaker Professor Sir Chris Ham, former CEO of the Kings Fund UK. We heard from our HSE teams around the country about the programme’s latest developments, and the first hand experiences of people benefitting from this programme.

The ECC Conference was recorded in full, so that it could be available to people who weren’t able to attend or watch on the day.
