The chief inspector of Adult Social Care at the Care Quality Commission said she will be answering some tough questions on social care at an upcoming industry conference hosted by NHS England.
Kate Terroni will chair the session ‘All you’ve ever wanted to know about adult social care but were too afraid to ask’ at the Health and Care Innovation Expo in Manchester next week.
“I will be joined by a person with lived experience and a carer to hear their personal reflections about accessing health and social care and leaders in the social care field to discuss the central role social care has in supporting people to remain independent,” she told Home Care Insight.
Health and Care Innovation Expo is the biggest NHS-led event of the year. Held every September at Manchester Central, it attracts around 5,000 people from the NHS, social care, local government, the third sector and the commercial sector.
Terroni will also be joining a panel discussion on ‘Working together, transforming lives: primary and social care collaboration’ with her colleague, Rosie Benneyworth, chief inspector of Primary Medical Services and Integrated Care to share their vision for how regulation can support people to receive more joined up health and social care.
Matt Hancock, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, will deliver a keynote speech on the second day of the conference, details for which have yet to emerge.
Expo 2019 will take place on September 4-5 and aims to inspire leaders and clinicians to make improvements for patients and service users.
