Grass root lessons in survival at Care Association Alliance conference

Blog post 2 May 2017

Looking to get an insight into the current market trends of the care sector? Wanting to catch up on the national scene and hear some informative speakers who’ll tell is how it is? Need to network with the movers and shakers?

The Care Association Alliance is holding it’s fifth annual Health+Care conference at Excel London June 28-29 and our West Midlands Care Association will by there in the providers’ area where you can network and share best practice.

Being billed as “the largest and most important event dedicated to securing the future of care in the UK,” it promises a range of business workshops with a networking zone that represents a collaboration for the entire care industry.

Health+Care is the leading event for both residential and home care businesses.

My co-chair Erica Lockhart, says: “The Alliance will be hosting sessions at Health+Care in addition to a sponsored lunch and networking event. This provides a great opportunity to learn from our peers within health and care.”

And we all know knowledge is power. Like at no time ever before, I’m driven to know what is on the horizon for care and how care providers and those who buy in care are responding to the current unstable marketplace.

Owners, directors and managers from local care home businesses will get the unparalleled opportunity to attend Health+Care at no charge.

It’s been our experience that delegates attend year-on-year to find real solutions to safeguarding the future on their businesses and to dramatically improve the services they provide.

There are already 20 associations on board and will be attending with their teams.

These include: Bedfordshire Care Association, Berkshire Care Association, Care and Support West, Cornwall Partners in Care, Bournemouth, Dorset & Poole Care Providers Federation, East Midlands CARE, Essex Independent Care Association, Gloucestershire Care Providers Association, Hampshire Care Association, Isle of Wight Care Association, Kent Integrated Care Alliance, Lincolnshire Care Associations, London Care and Support Forum, Northamptonshire Care Association of Registered Care Homes, Norfolk Independent Care, Oxfordshire Association of Care Providers, Somerset Care Association, Surrey Care Association and, of course, West Midlands Care Association.

Michael Corbett, event manager at Health+Care adds: “The partnership between the conference and Care Association Alliance comes at a pivotal time for the care sector.

“The pressure to keep care businesses open during a financially challenging time has meant the sharing of best practice has been put on the back burner.

“Delegates won’t waste time in long laborious seminars hearing from those who have no idea what it’s like in the real world. Instead, delegates can combine short inspiring talks from those who have already changed the way their care businesses run and have improved their outcomes. Managers, directors and owners of care businesses will gain valuable insights into how to perform their roles better and run more effective operations.”

Any members of the associations listed above can secure a complimentary pass to attend Health+Care on the 28-29 June 2017, Excel London via:
