With a long-term funding solution looking years away, the CQC proposing to introduce provider level assessments, and with National Minimum Wage issues prevailing, these are just a few of the challenges our clients are wrestling with.

Why should you attend?

    • Chair/Board relationships; and
    • Chief executive/board/team relationships.

  • What might “best practice” in governance look like over the next five years?

Regulation – Sarah Knight

  • CQC’s agenda and behaviour and the likely new provider inspection;
  • Best practice for CQC inspections; and
  • Challenging CQC’s reviews.

People – Matthew Wort and Anna Dabek

  • Recruitment and Retention – 10 ideas for action; and
  • National Living Wage – preparing for and handling an HMRC inspection and the next steps on sleep ins.

  • Tactics being deployed by local authorities in their contracting practices and how to combat them;
  • Care Act duties that can be used to your advantage in the commissioning framework; and
  • Ensuring your contracts with service users are compliant with consumer law in light of the CMA market study.

  • Is a flexible procurement process possible?
  • Can you secure a contract without procurement?

Finance – Jon Coane

    •  Types of funding suitable for the social care market; and
    • Key issues to consider when raising debt finance.
