Event: Southern regional breakfast briefing for care sector investors, operators and managers

Event date: 9th October 2019

Join us with Quantuma and Christie & Co for an informal update and Q&A looking at tackling current issues facing the care sector.

October 9 – 8.30am – 10.30am, Otterbourne Hill (part of Brendoncare Trust care home portfolio), Otterbourne, Winchester, Hampshire, SO21 2FL

The Care sector has always faced a challenge between balancing funding and financing, with regulatory conditions and resourcing. The need keeps growing across the public and private sectors, and there is no shortage of demand. But bad publicity dogs some providers, with staffing and performance being a key pressure point. How do providers attract caring, top performing managers who can cope with the requirements of the sector not to mention dealing with takeovers, new owners, capricious government funding and ever-changing regulation? And we haven’t even mentioned the “Brelephant” in the room…
