‘I love a poll,’ said Caring Times editor-in-chief Dr Richard Hawkins at the conclusion of a business brunch held in London in early July.

A show of hands was called on the question: ‘Who thinks the business environment of the care sector is going to improve, stay much the same or get worse?’ Close to 80 attendees had just heard presentations from Andrew Long of property consultants GLP Taylors, co-sponsor of the event, David Brooks of co-sponsors Grant Thornton, and Barchester healthcare chief executive Mike Parsons.
