There's still time to book in for Care Forum Wales' Essential Updates

If you haven't booked yet for our Autumn 'Essential Updates' there's still time. These important twice-yearly seminars will provide delegates with an informative, focused and interactive day that will ensure Registered Providers, Registered Managers and Senior Staff who are responsible for providing social care in Wales will leave the seminar with the very latest information on the opportunities that exist for your organisation to stay ahead of the rest.


You can book by downloading a booking form HERE and emailing it to Janet at Care Forum Wales and choose from the following venues:

Sept 26:  National Botanic Gardens, Carmarthenshire.

Sept 27: University of South Wales.

Oct 5: Optic, St Asaph.

Speakers and topics at our Essential Updates, Autumn 2017

In the south we will have Steve Vaughan from National Commissioning Board who will be talking about the NCB’s work programme which includes market analysis, new models of care and commissioning toolkits. Also the Competitions and Market Authority will be holding a round-table event after the main seminars where they will be asking providers to suggest solutions to some of the issues raised in their recent draft report into care homes (anyone can attend this, even if they didn't attend the update).

CSSIW will be providing an update following the consultation on the Regulation and Inspection of Social Care regulations, and we also hope to have a focus on the new Statement of Purpose.

Social Care Wales will provide up to date information about the proposed new qualifications required for registration – an interactive workshop session giving attendees a chance to talk about the challenges and possible solutions.

Judith John from the Welsh Government will also be at both South Wales updates to talk about nutrition and what support is available or needed for providers. And CFW's health and safety consultant, Anthony Arcari, will be at all three updates to talk about fire risks.
