The Care England 2019 conference and exhibition will shine a spotlight on the social care workforce and the steps it’s taking to meet the challenges of effective care delivery in today’s economic climate.
With ‘Workforce Matters’ as the theme, the event will take place at the Church House Conference Centre in London on Wednesday, November 13.
Care England CEO Professor Martin Green said the conference will further underline how a skilled and dedicated workforce sits at the centre of exemplary care.
“Many people, including other professionals, fail to appreciate the value of the social care workforce, so we need to make them aware and adopt a more focused approach to recruitment, retention and training. We’re also interested in demonstrating the role of new technologies in developing new care services that are fit for the 21st century,” he said.
“Workforce Matters will give providers pragmatic, tried and tested ideas to nurture their most precious resource; the workforce.”
The speaker line-up is now taking shape with the following confirmed speakers sharing their expertise and experience.
Rachel Smith, head of Business Systems and Management Information at Orchard Care Homes, will give a presentation on a bespoke software project which delivers an optimised rostering system to deliver significant time and cost savings for Orchard Care Homes.
The Care England conference will also welcome back Alyson Scurfield, chief executive of the TEC Services Association, who will present research findings on how today’s IT systems can support the effective delivery of care.
Other speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.
The day’s programme will also feature an exhibition of products and services from leading organisations, plus a selection of informed seminars.
