The incoming chief inspector of Adult Social Care at the Care Quality Commission has been confirmed as a speaker at the Care England 2019 conference.
Kate Terroni, who will start her new role in the first week of May, taking over from Debbie Westhead, will share her thoughts on the impact good leadership has on care providers in today’s challenging financial climate, Home Care Insight has learned.
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.
Avnish Goyal, Care England’s Chair, is encouraging all providers in the independent care sector to attend the event.
“Every provider will tell you that workforce matters. We need to invest in the right resources to be able to recruit and retain the workforce of today and of tomorrow,” she said.
“The social care workforce is highly skilled and as such needs to be valued accordingly. I would encourage all providers to attend Care England’s conference as it will be a unique opportunity to glean useful information and practices from the esteemed speakers, network with other delegates on the topics that are going to be the important challenge to the sector as we enter the next decade of the 21st century.”
Other confirmed speakers include Rachel Smith, head of Business Systems and Management Information at Orchard Care Homes and Alyson Scurfield, CEO of TEC Services Association.
Care England CEO Professor Martin Green said: “This is a conference for the whole sector. It will deliver practical advice for all levels of management and, in keeping with previous years, it will be CPD accredited. Workforce Matters will further underline how a skilled and dedicated workforce sits at the centre of exemplary care.”
