Care Talk Conference- From New Normal to New Future

How has the response to Covid-19 changed social care practice?


10th November, QEII Centre, London  #GetSocialCareDone 


Now that Brexit is done can we finally achieve the once in a generation task of social care reform? Despite the devastating impact COVID-19 has had on society, social care has once again demonstrated its key importance as the sister of the NHS;  the fourth emergency service. We have seen unprecedented political and public interest in the sector.  So, what can the sector do to maintain this level of interest and once and for all achieve, the so desperately needed reform of social care?  

Hosted by Care Talk magazine in association with the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE), this conference will see key influencers representing all areas of the sector come together to discuss the challenges and opportunities that have arisen from the pandemic.  Speakers will look at current trends in the sector and how social care practice has changed during Covid and beyond, equipping delegates with the latest information and innovations. Panel discussions will focus on how to get social care done and attain long overdue reform for the sector. 

 This event will be of interest to registered managers, senior managers, clinicians, owner managers, key decision makers and influencers from across the socialcare arena, including adult services and services for people with learning disabilities and/or autism.
