The 2010 programme for this ‘must attend’ event reflects the unprecedented challenges and opportunities for providers of all types of  care service.While operating businesses have generally fared well since the global credit crisis of Autumn 2008, many over-levered operators are still
struggling to achieve financial stability after the excesses of the credit boom. Meanwhile, ‘payback’ time is beckoning, with the expectation of severe cutbacks in public sector spending from 2011/12.


This will be a challenging time especially for those providers with heavy exposure to public sector purchasers, for example in the specialist areas of learning disabilities and mental health. At the same time, underlying demand will not go away and there will be real opportunities for those able respond to the ‘transformation’ agenda, to innovate, develop new care pathways and offer good quality and value for money in response to central and local government’s imperative to achieve efficiencies. Meanwhile, whatever government proposals emerge in the wake of care funding Green Paper, the scene seems set for a further shift towards older people paying privately for care services. While home care, extra care and residential care have hitherto
developed in their own ‘silos’, even for private payers, could the future witness a transformation to more integrated and truly customer focused offerings?

With top level contributions from the Department of Health, Care Quality Commission, providers, commissioners and expert advisers, the conference will seek to shed light on the direction of travel for the long term care sector, and to highlight the opportunities as well as the threats to providers who fail to respond to a rapidly changing market place.
