Surrey Care Group Hosts Conference with A Vision for Progress in Health and Social Care

A family-owned care group based across Surrey and South West London has held a management conference to present its vision for the future of the company – sharing the exciting developments and partnerships set to shape the organisation’s journey in the coming years.

CHD Living has recently held its first manager’s conference with the theme of ‘moving forwards’. The conference served as a platform for the group to highlight its current and future developments, acquisitions, and refurbishments within CHD services – giving the managers a sneak peek into the organisation’s future direction.

The event featured speakers from Camascope, a software aiming to transform the medication processes for care providers, Ally Cares, a company providing resident acoustic monitoring systems for care homes, and representatives from Surrey County Council.

The day also celebrated success stories and achievements within CHD Living. Examples from each service, ranging from quotes extracted from CQC reports to refurbishments, activities, and manager journeys, emphasised the organisation’s commitment to delivering high-quality care.

Two important announcements at the event were the launch of CHD Living’s Training Academy, a long-standing dream of the organisation, and its introduction of a new quality assurance initiative.

The CHD Training Academy aims to have its training reviewed and accredited by the CPD Certification Service, a nationally recognised independent accreditation service for Continuing Professional Development. This accreditation will enable CHD Living to offer high-quality training to other providers in the area.

In addition to mandatory training required for health and safety care, CHD Living offers a wide range of development courses for staff at all levels. The recent addition of a Clinical Training Associate, Kensey O’Hara, enables CHD Living to develop and deliver in-house clinical training for pre-registered and registered nursing staff.

Embarking on a mission to enhance quality assurance in its group, the company has also worked on a pilot project with the Surrey County Council which is implementing the Provider Assessment and Market Management Solution (PAMMS) system. Developed by the Access Group, PAMMS is currently deployed by 50 local authorities in England, making it a widely recognised market management system.

Speaking on the conference’s success, a Director of CHD Living, Shaleeza Hasham, said: “I’m hugely proud of the remarkable journey that CHD Living is on and of the strides our organisation has made and continues to make. The dedication of our staff continues to inspire me; together, we are shaping the future of CHD Living and, through our collective efforts, we ensure the wellbeing and quality of life for our residents.”
