About This Conference

Monday 09 October 2023 | 09:00 - 16:00

The past three years have been some of the most challenging times for those operating in the health and social care sectors and we have become accustomed to reading headlines about the impact of care on society. 

Whether this is health care provided in clinical settings or social care provided in the community – the headlines have been stark. From endeavouring to provide top quality care in extremely difficult times to how care is funded – there is a lot to consider and everyone has an opinion.  

Chaired by Heledd Wyn, Partner at Shakespeare Martineau we will be joined by a panel of guests who have been at the forefront of care and will share their views on care provision during the pandemic and beyond from funding care fees, legal developments and case law updates. 

Our panel members are:

Jonathan Freeman, CareTech Foundation – will be talking about social care and how we champion the social care sector, care workers and those living in care.

Mark Taubert, Velindre Cancer Centre – Consultant in Palliative Medicine & Honorary Professor School of Medicine discussing how care and capacity is fundamental to crucial decisions in palliative care.
