Improving the care pathways for older people is high on the agenda for health and social care. To generate a greater understanding of how both sectors can work more effectively together, Care England and the Royal College of Nursing are joining forces for a high level conference for leading figures from the NHS and social care.
This exclusive, invitation only event, ‘All together now! Breaking the boundaries of care’, will take place on 29 May 2015 at the Royal College of Nursing in Cavendish Square, London. The day’s programme will feature a line-up of informed and influential speakers, including Andrea Sutcliffe, Chief Inspector, Adult Social Care, Care Quality Commission, Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer, NHS England, Dr Peter Carter, Chief Executive, Royal College of Nursing and Professor Trish Morris-Thompson, Barchester Healthcare Ltd.
Professor Martin Green, Care England Chief Executive and also one of the keynote speakers, explains the thinking behind the event. ‘Our long term aim is to break down the barriers between sectors, so this conference will enable delegates to consider ways they can work together and further improve the care given to older people.’
Delegates at the conference will also take part in discussion workshops and view a small exhibition of products and services from leading sector suppliers.
