. . . and yet another call for a united sector voice

Posted on April 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Two speakers at the Care Forum Wales annual conference called for care sector associations to work more closely together. Independent healthcare Association executive director of public affairs Dr Tim Evans said the long term care sector was handicapped by a plethora of groups and associations which claimed to be representative. “The expenditure and duplication within all the associations boggles my mind,” Dr Evans said. Similarly, GR Patrick & Co managing director Geoff Patrick said the sector needed one authoritative trade organisation representing the whole industry. “It is only from this position that government will listen,” Mr Patrick said. “A much more vocal case must be presented for adequate funding of the industry, before time runs out and many professional caring people lose their businesses.”
