“Karen and I enjoyed a very inspirational day at the Care England Conference in Westminster this week. It was really enlightening to hear such a range of speakers discussing the challenges their organisations, and they as individuals face through working in the sector. Speakers included Norman Lamb, Lib Dem Spokesman for Health; Ilora Finlay, Professor of Palliative Medicine at Cardiff University; Peter Kinsey, CEO of Care Management Group; Dominique Kent, COO of The Good Care Group; and Avnish Goyal, MD of Hallmark Care Homes.

We also had the opportunity to speak to a representative from Person Centred Software, a fantastic system which monitors, updates & records the giving of care for each individual resident and allows relatives to check their loved one’s care plan remotely.

It was brilliant to listen to people with such a passion about the sector and about how we are to move forward given recent circumstances, including the nursing shortage and staffing problems as a whole. Overall, it was a productive day and it has left me with a renewed excitement in supporting and implementing change in the sector.”
