The Care Association Alliance was part of the organisation of a National Conference held in London at Excel on 28th and 29th July.
The Association is part of the Care Association Alliance which is made up of all the other Local Care Associations around the Country. This gives us the chance to meet all the National figures and ensure the voice of the Midlands is heard.
The Conference called Health plus Care was an opportunity to get to National figures who wouldn’t have come to a Care exhibition, but they would a Health Exhibition. We had talks in all the different forums about the Care Industry and what we are doing, all of which were well attended.
We also had a large stand which acted as a meeting place for everyone, which was manned by many Local Associations inc. West Midlands.
We talked to many different types of media, Government bodies, Laing and Buisson and National Organisations. We had a brief chat to Andrea Sutcliffe, the Head of CQC, as she headed to her speaking engagement as one of the Key Speakers.
