LaingBuisson, a leading provider of healthcare market intelligence, has opened its annual Social Care conference in London, and there’s expected to be a strong focus on home care.
The conference, taking place in Central London today, will start with a welcome introduction from LaingBuisson CEO Henry Elphick, followed by a keynote speech from Julie Ogley, the new president of Association of Directors of Adult Social Services; a Q&A session with industry commissioners; and a discussion on making the most of Green Paper reforms.
The morning session will continue with talks on how technology can aid recruitment and a panel debate with social care investors, and after lunch, the conference will be split into two sessions – one dedicated to home care and the other to residential care.
Key speakers in the home care conference are Colin Angel, policy director at United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA), who will discuss the state of the market; Steve Sawyer, Divisional Director at Access, who will provide data insights in home care; and James Thorburn, CEO of City and County Healthcare Group, who will make predictions on what the future holds for home care.
They’ll also be a panel discussion on solving the retention problem in home care and supported living.
The Social Care conference will close with care providers with the highest CQC ratings discussing how they are achieving excellence and a discussion on making the move into the housing with care market led by Nick Sanderson, CEO of Audley Care.
