Care Sector Briefing - Winchester

October 9th 2019 - Winchester

Brendoncare Otterbourne Hill,  Winchester,  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” …..

Who should attend?

  • Care Home operators
  • Care Home directors and senior management 
  • Accountants specialising in the care home sector
  • Lenders to the care home sector 
  • Private Equity houses with an interest in the care home sector
