The Care England conference 2019 will adopt the theme of 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 focus, the event will take place at the Church House Conference Centre in London on Wednesday 13th November.
Speakers will include Rachel Smith, Head of Business Systems and Management Information at Orchard Care Homes, who will give a presentation on a bespoke software project with a fully-optimised rostering system to deliver time and cost savings for Orchard Care Homes.
Also presenting, and speaking for the second year running at the Care England conference, will be Alyson Scurfield, Chief Executive of the TEC Services Association, who will share up-to--date research findings on how today’s IT systems can support the effective delivery of care. Other speakers are due to be announced soon.
Professor Martin Green OBE, Care England Chief Executive, says, '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. This conference will further underline how a skilled and dedicated workforce sits at the centre of exemplary care.'
'Workforce Matters will give providers pragmatic, tried and tested ideas to nurture their most precious resource; the workforce. It is extremely good value and I look forward to seeing providers at Church House on 13th November for what promises to be another extremely useful day.'
The day's programme will also feature an exhibition of products and services from leading organisations, plus a selection of informed seminars. All parts of the sector are welcome to attend the Care England conference 2019, not just Care England members. More information is available on the Care England website.
