A Joint Conference Healthcare Conferences UK & The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust

Researched and produced in partnership with The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, this important and timely conference will support delegates to better understand and meet the needs of people with medically unexplained symptoms/somatic symptom disorder. The summit follows on from a similar popular event held in London at the end of 2016, and will provide a networking and learning forum for leaders and practitioners in the field of somatic symptom disorder. 

Through national updates, extended sessions and practical case studies the Summit will bring together leading practitioners in this area, and focus on developing a holistic integrated service, improving the management of people in primary care, evaluating the Stepped Care Model and Learning from the National Pathfinders, developing nurse led services, commissioning services and looking ahead to the future of care for people with medically unexplained symptoms.

The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust has substantial experience in developing and implementing integrated, GP based primary care services focusing on MUS .Their Hackney PCPCS (Primary Care Psychotherapy and Consultation Service) has won numerous national awards, and a Health economics evaluation in 2015 showed that it produced excellent “value for money”. Their TAP project (Team around the Practice) in Camden builds on this tradition and incorporates Social prescribing , in partnership with the VSO “Mind in Camden”. These services are amongst a number of pioneering approaches from throughout the UK, to be showcased at the MUS summit, all bringing new models, health economics data, outcome monitoring and patient involvement.
