6th National Care Homes Congress

This event was held on the 9th July 2013 at the Clarendon Suites, Birmingham


The 6th annual National Care Homes Congress (NCHC) again proved to be the leading care home event, committed to providing practical, ‘coalface’ advice on quality care, with another hugely successful gathering in Birmingham.  The initiative of the congress was to discuss the significant challenges which Care Homes will face over the next few years. It also addressed what is required to respond if they are to survive and thrive.

This year the congress focused on commissioning, putting care homes at the heart of their communities and innovation in response to the challenges faced by homes.
