Have you booked your place yet for the 2019 LinCA Conference? They will be welcoming Prof. Martin Vernon, National Clinical Director for Older People and Person Centred Care, NHS England as their keynote speaker. Glen Garrod will also be joining them again as well as Dr Kieran Sharrock, Lincolnshire LMC. Interactive workshops and a technology marketplace will be hosted throughout the day.
It’s no secret that carers are often viewed as the unsung heroes of healthcare. It became even more evident during a talk given by Professor Martin Green, Chief Executive of Care England, in which he highlighted the opportunities and challenges faced by those providing care and the unfortunate message that the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care inadvertently sends by only wearing an NHS lapel badge.
There are significant changes in the wider community that are impacting on care including integration of health, housing and care, the rise of technology, changing demographics, emerging communities and pressures on workforce and funding.
The provision of great care in the future will rely on the Adult Social Care sector taking control of how it engages with these changes.
The conference is for CEOs, Trustees and Senior Teams and Leaders from across the social care sector, who are passionate about embracing the future. The NCF will also have in the audience their latest cohort of inspiring managers, identified through their NCF Rising Stars programme, who they know will be critical in shaping the future of great care.
Social care suppliers are increasingly working together towards the Holy Grail of universal digital software adoption in a sector with the unenviable reputation of being a laggard when it comes to technology.
Scottish Care hosts the National Care at Home and Housing Support Conference, Exhibition & Awards on 17 May 2019. Once again, this will take place at the Marriott Hotel in Glasgow.
