Following the success of a conference, organised by NHS Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in partnership with Health Builders the event to bring together children’s health care professionals has become an annual event.

The President of the Royal College of Pediatrics and Child Health, Dr Hilary Cass will once again be guest speaker at the Integrated Children’s Conference to be held at Rheged, near Penrith on July 5.

The theme of the day is ‘Developing the emotional wellbeing and resilience of our children’ and will be attended by 150 local health care professionals and organizations from across Cumbria.

Health Builders, a movement to transform services for children's health will once again donate a tree and plant it in the ground of Rheged to mark the key event, and as a symbol of child growth.

Following the inaugural event Dr Hilary Cass said: “The conference has been very inspirational giving a diversity of perspective around a united theme - because of the wide range of backgrounds and experiences of the people attending, it has been a very optimistic and upbeat event with a clear sense of purpose.”

NHS Cumbria CCG Clinical Director Children & Families, Dr Neela Shabde said: “We are delighted that the conference has become an annual event. It is all about bringing together health professionals, local authorities and the third sector who work with children and families from across Cumbria to discuss how we can make a real difference to way services currently run. To me it’s about pursuing excellence for the children of Cumbria.

“Looking after the healthcare of children is vitally important and experiences in early life can have an in their adulthood. We must get it right for children in Cumbria.”

The conference will be funded by NHS Cumbria CCG, the lead organization for commissioning health services for the people of Cumbria and is a GP membership organisation, made up of all family doctors working for the 82 GP practices in the county.
