Join the Health and Wellbeing Alliance and NHS England at this webinar to hear about work by the British Red Cross, Citizens Advice and Race Equality Foundation that has helped to reduce winter pressures and resulted in better standards of living, fewer avoidable winter deaths and made savings for health and care services. Participants will be introduced to toolkits, case studies and resources which offer useful insights on effective ways of working.
Following the presentations, participants will discuss the role of the voluntary sector and opportunities for better integrating the sector in the planning and management of winter pressures. This webinar is aimed at policy leads, commissioners, Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise organisations, local authorities and others involved in winter planning.
What is a webinar?
A webinar is an online seminar. You will usually need a computer that is connected to the internet, and a telephone. You will see PowerPoint slides presented on your computer screen, and there is usually an opportunity to type in a ‘chat’ box at the side of the screen if you have any questions. In order to hear the presenter and participants, you can either phone in to the meeting, or request that the meeting automatically phones you, which is free, even to a mobile. You hear the meeting audio over your phone, like a conference call, while watching your screen. You can usually ask questions or make comments if you want to, but you don’t have to if you want to just listen.
