Information Sharing Summit 2015

Tuesday 29th September 2015, Royal Armouries, Leeds LS10 1LT

According to the Local Government Association, between the Chancellor's first Budget in 2010 and the end of the next financial year, the money government gives to councils to provide local services will have fallen by 40 per cent. Their updated funding outlook reveals that the financial black hole facing local government is widening by £2.1 billion a year and will reach £14.4 billion by 2020.   It's no longer about finding back office efficiencies, or closing libraries. If vital care services are to be maintained, let alone improved, radically new delivery models must be introduced, and quickly.  

Our opening plenary will look at the greatest challenge to the modernisation of services under continuing austerity - accessible, safe and secure information sharing. It's a complex subject and our panel members will present their views across the three key areas that must align for the right outcome, namely; technology, information governance and culture. Our chairman will then lead a debate using questions from the floor, to surface the key issues that both practitioners in the field and the information systems teams that support them, are facing on a daily basis.

You’ll have the opportunity to hear from people setting the agenda, leading practitioners and suppliers who have real solutions to offer, network with your peers and hear best practice case studies. It’s a valuable chance to understand the latest commercial, technical and practical foundations to help reconcile the demand for better public services with ever tighter budgets.
