Major conference for those involved in the health and care sectors announced
This event is designed to deliver genuine value to the participants and it can only achieve that by being free of sponsor bias and messaging. We hope it will be an opportunity for those present to hear from, but also to engage with, objective and informed experts who have been involved in care services for many years.
The ever increasing interest in health and care policy will make an upcoming conference on ‘Improving Health and Care’ on 7th March 2013 at the prestigious charity think-tank, the Kings Fund in London, even more timely and relevant for anyone involved in care provision in the voluntary, local authority, state and private sectors.
The event, organised by national law firm Shoosmiths LLP, will be chaired by Fergus Walsh, the BBC’s highly respected medical correspondent and will feature plenary sessions from Katherine Murphy, Chief Executive of the Patients Association, Phil Hope, former Minister of State for Care Services and Sheila Scott OBE, Chief Executive of the National Care Association.
There will also be further presentations from Prof Margot Gosney, Consultant in Elderly Care Medicine at the Royal Berkshire NHS Trust and Nick Abbey, Chief Executive of the Extra Care Charitable Trust. Topics covered will include how to place patients at the centre of care, the future of care provision in the UK; government policy and alternative care options.
Shoosmiths has a wealth of experience in dealing with the often complex legalities surrounding care provision, from regulation to powers of attorney and deputyships, but Richard Follis, the law firm’s national head of clinical negligence practice, added: “This event is designed to deliver genuine value to the participants and it can only achieve that by being free of sponsor bias and messaging. We hope it will be an opportunity for those present to hear from, but also to engage with, objective and informed experts who have been involved in care services for many years.”
