Care England has announced that the focus of its 2016 conference & exhibition, ‘Mind Matters’, will be the Mental Capacity Act and the care sector’s pivotal role in looking after some of society’s most vulnerable members with mental health conditions. The conference will take place at the Church House Conference Centre in London on Wednesday, 16 November.
Professor Martin Green, Care England Chief Executive, says:
‘This event has relevance for care providers from across the sector, whether they’re looking after people with learning disabilities, acquired brain injuries or older people with dementia. Our prominent speakers will be looking in particular at the implementation of the Mental Capacity Act and how we can share best practice to combat the immense challenges and thus continue ensuring consistently high standards of delivery’.

Confirmed speakers to date include Baroness Finlay of Llandaff, a Professor of Palliative Medicine at Cardiff University and an Independent Crossbench member of the House of Lords; Rt Hon Norman Lamb MP, Shadow Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Health; Peter Kinsey, Chief Executive of Care Management Group and Dominique Kent, Director of Operations at The Good Care Group, who will deliver the provider perspective.
