Care England and ITN Productions formed a partnership to create an online news programme for the care and social care sector.

Having toured the country looking at examples of quality care and success stories from the sector, the production team will launch the news programme in time for the National Care Home Open Day Friday 20th June 2014.

Presented by national newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky, from the ITN national news studios, Care England said the aim of the programme was to present the key issues facing the sector, and with that gather more support for vital policy and funding requirements.

The programme free to stream or download and playback during the National Care Home Open Day for all members taking part at this year’s open day and includes interviews from Professor Martin Green, chief executive at Care England, Andrea Sutcliffe, chief inspector for adult social care at CQC and shadow health secretary Andy Burnham.

In addition, it features case studies from Skills for Care, DC Care, Henshaws Society for Blind People, SCA Tena, Paying for Care, Bidvest 3663, Budget Control, Wellburn Care Homes, Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks, Medipost, Sunrise Senior Living, Apetito, Orchard Care Homes, Towergate Insurance, The National Skills Academy for Social Care, Institute of Diabetes for Older People, Independent Diabetes Trust and Gracewell Healthcare.

The ITN and Care England news programme will feature at the upcoming Care England Annual Conference on November 13th 2014 at Church House, London where the content will be shown to delegates.

  • For more information on participating in the next phase of this project, please contact the director of UK programming Simon Shelley, simon.shelly@itn.co.uk. Inclusion in the final programme is by invitation only.
