Changes at the top announced at NCHA

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

After almost five years of service, National Care Homes Association chairman Barry Hartley stepped down as chairman of the association, at the conclusion of the NCHA annual conference held as part of CareExpo 2001. Mr Hartley, who will continue as a full executive member, told Caring Times that he will be working with the Department of Health on strengthening the concordat with the private sector. Mrs Nadra Ahmed, who manages the 19-bed Headcorn residential home in Kent, is now the NCHA chairman, with Dick Barton and Chistine Ferrier as joint vice-chairmen.
