carenorfolk The Norfolk Care Convention 2017
15th November 2017 at the Norfolk Showground
Care, and all its implications is, and always has been, a vital element in society. Today, as we not only witness the changes happening around us, but also glimpse the future, it’s become obvious. In the future the relationship between care providers and council supported care consumers will be radically different. It will be a future based on choice.
We all want to see a big shift in the relationship between the council and the care market, with much greater emphasis on shaping and designing future care choices which will be designed around what customers want.
At The Norfolk Care Convention we are launching the call to action for the biggest transformation in the Norfolk care market in decades.
The Norfolk Care Convention 2017 will be the first step towards the future. Building on the legacy of previous Norfolk Care Conferences, it is your opportunity to explore the choices available to you, and for you to contribute your knowledge and opinions, to help shape the future. A future where people are better supported to be independent, resilient and well.
Founded on the three pillars of Quality, Sustainability and Value for Money, the new market oriented approach will be supported to allow the creation of new and innovative solutions to prevent, reduce or delay the need for formal care. It will always recognise the value of local community assets.
The policy for the future is for a consumer led market. It will be a ‘light touch’ approach making it less about what the council wants to do and more about what the consumer requires. The vision is for informed customers to be able to make the right choices, for the best care. Realising that vision will require planning.
