BFCHP plans funding lobby

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

The British Federation of Care Home Proprietors (BFCHP) held its AGM at CareExpo 2001. After three years as chairman and director, Kath Brown resigned and was suceeded as chairman by Geoffrey Cox who, for the time being, will also continue as finance director. Marion Burns contiinues as research and development director, a post she has held for the past three years. During the meeting the stage was set to lobby government on the vexed question of funding. This would entail appeals to care home owners and proprietors of other care facilities throughout the UK ­ possibly in concert with another participating organisation ­ to ensure maximum impact.
