Clydesdale & Yorkshire Banks are the headline sponsor of the ‘All Change’ conference on November 19 which will examine the impact of the Care Quality Commission’s new regulatory powers.

Co-hosted by Lester Aldridge Solicitors and Caring Times, the conference in London will look at how tougher corporate accountability requirements and a ‘duty of candour’ will affect directors and senior management of care home provider groups.

Presenter, journalist and campaigner Esther Rantzen will chair the event at which Secretary of State for Health Jeremy Hunt will be the keynote speaker. Ms Rantzen will interview Andrea Sutcliffe, the chief inspector of adult social care at the Care Quality Commission.

Specialist care sector lawyer Peter Grose, of Lester Aldridge, will outline the regulatory changes, telling providers “everything you need to know and can’t afford to ignore” and Barchester Healthcare chief executive Dr Pete Calveley will give a “provider’s view in a nutshell”.

BBC producer Joe Plomin will given a presentation on the role of the investigative journalist. Three Question and Answer sessions after lunch will give those attending plenty of scope to quiz expert panels on how to achieve and evidence quality care while remaining financially viable and on how the regulatory changes will impact on the funding, valuation, development and future of care homes.
