Professor Sue Baines to speak at launch of new book on healthcare

Thursday 18 January 2018

PERU's Professor Sue Baines is one of the speakers at the launch of a new book on reforming health and social care at Manchester Metropolitan University on the 20th March at 4pm.

In his new book, Alex Fox OBE, Chief Executive of Shared Lives Plus, asks how we can find sustainable and human ways to care for people with long-term needs. The rules and assumptions of the invisible asylum are felt in ‘community’ services that feel nothing like community. Alex Fox proposes his alternative model: replace current institutionalised responses by focusing on maintaining well-being rather than reacting to crisis. Responsibilities, resources and risks are fairly and transparently shared as this book offers steps which citizens, front-line services and government can take to achieve progress.

Sue joins other speakers including Jon Rouse, Chief Officer of Greater Manchester Health and Care Partnership and Liz Kendall MP previously a Minister in the Department of Health and Shadow Minister for Care and Older People.
