Welcome to the NHS Addictions Provider Alliance Virtual Conference

Over the last few years addiction services and those who use them have experienced great upheaval. This has most obviously been seen in reduced capacity across health, social care and the voluntary sector – often due to budgets being reduced and repurposed – the experience of many community drug and alcohol services reflect this story recently. Promisingly, an awareness and acceptance with regards to a growing need for addiction services for those experiencing problems with gambling is now rightfully significant also. Covid-19 and its implications only go to amplify existing need and accelerates the challenge for addiction services which is to build new ways of working for those affected and to refresh and renew what we do.

The 2020 virtual conference is about catching our breath, stepping back and thinking “What does good look like?”. Those who use our services should expect the best quality services we can provide. Therefore, we are posing the following questions: What do these services look like now? What is available? What expertise and skills do staff need to provide them? What do service users expect? The conference will explore these questions through a range of speakers and presentations – we look forward to you joining us.

For the avoidance of doubt, the NHS Addictions Provider Alliance (NHS APA) Conference on the 9th of September 2020, shall be referred to throughout this disclaimer as a “Virtual Conference Event”.

Get involved: New Directions for Addictions Services Survey

Much of the progress achieved previously in drug and alcohol treatment has been lost through successive disinvestment in services, competitive tendering, and years of austerity. There is an emerging ‘Quality Gap’ between drug treatments and interventions known to be effective and everyday practice in drug services. There are new patterns of drug use, and increasing availability of drugs on-line. Glaring health inequalities and prospects of a premature death exist for people using drugs and alcohol. Covid-19 has reshaped the ways in which many of us live and work.

 

The demise of Public Health England leaves open future arrangements for health improvement programmes, and the delivery of both drug and alcohol treatment services.  Now is the time to re-think the design, delivery and commissioning of drug and alcohol services, to maximise health and social gain for individuals and to ‘level-up’ communities.

We want to be at the forefront of change. Based on our assessment of where drug and alcohol services are struggling and possible solutions for change, we have identified 12 directives for future commissioning and provision. We have a wonderful opportunity here at this conference with over 500 delegates to ask for your ideas. Please complete the short survey below.
