    Dementia 2020 Implementing the Challenge

    08.15-16.45Royal Society of Medicine, London

    Govconnect is a social enterprise dedicated to assisting the wide range of organisations in the UK & EU challenged with delivering health and social care policy. We seek to ensure that the vision for Health and Care is delivered upon across all UK and European geographies and administrations.

    Through a series of strategic conferences and accompanying digital and social engagement strategies, Govconnect will provide a platform to drive greater collaboration.

    In turn, it is hoped that models of care can be improved upon, partnerships strengthened and that through engagement with local communities and their local and national delivery agents tasked with the provision of Health & Care; the quality of patient experience, safety, and care is enhanced.

    Through our inaugural conference in London and the accompanying Northern version, we have ensured that the leading stakeholders are convened to discuss the progressions to date. These activities have empowered hundreds of health and care professionals with valuable insight on future policy aspirations for 2020 and beyond. The huge success of these initiatives have also enabled Govconnect to utilise its social status and reinvest back into many community projects and National charities.

    To ensure that we deliver on our pledge we are urging policy makers, government departments and all responsible agencies and organisations to work with us on these unique set of challenges.

    As one of the UK’s fastest growing social enterprises we work with a range of local community projects on issues linked to Dementia, in addition to investing our profits to key research charities and many other worthy causes.
