Leading local care providers gathered on Wednesday (13th May) to discuss the future of the UK care industry.
Over 100 delegates attended this year’s event at Wetherby Racecourse with the agenda focusing on how best to maintain high standards while sustainably growing the industry to meet rising demands.
In its 15th year, the Caring UK Care Providers Conference brings those working in the care sector together to exchange knowledge, best practice, innovation and support.
The event, supported and sponsored by Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks, heard from an array of speakers on a diverse range of topics from dementia care to finance.
Derek Breingan, Head of Healthcare Sector UK at Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks was one of the speakers at the conference. He said: “Like any other businesses, care homes need to be built on solid financial foundations.
“Delivering the highest standards of service and growth are two of the biggest ambitions in the UK care home industry today.
With a growing population, improvements in healthcare, and people living longer, continued investment is needed to ensure appropriate care is provided.
“To achieve the growth required to meet demand, businesses need access to appropriate and tailored financial services and support. Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks have a wealth of experience in working with care providers to ensure we meet their very specific needs.”
