Health+Care and the Commissioning Show returns to London’s ExCel on the 24 – 25 June 2015. Taking place just weeks after the General Election, the UK’s largest, must-attend social and primary care event, will provide a platform for the new health ministers to give their first public addresses to the sector. The ministers will be joined by hundreds of expert speakers who will help delegates examine how frontline innovations are improving care and creating a stronger market.
The 2015 event is made up of seven key strands that are central to the future of health and social care: Residential Care; Home Care; Integrated Care; Commissioning, run in partnership with NHSCC; Care Commissioning; Public Health and Technology First.
The Residential Care stream in particular will highlight how providers are working with commissioners to transform the sector’s role, offering vital services that balance cost, quality, choice and value-for-money in a developing market. The business building sessions, including: differentiating your care business to maximise your profitability and seven recruitment mistakes the residential care and nursing home sector is making, will help delegates improve the efficiency of their businesses and effectiveness of their care.
Bridget Warr, UK Care Home Association, chief executive, said: “This is an amazing event. It’s vast and gives people access to so much information. It’s enormously valuable for people to be able step away from their day to day roles and come to a show like this to learn from others in the industry.”

Speaking about last year’s show, Rt Hon Norman Lamb MP, said: “This conference, the largest of its kind, represents the change we need to see in our health and social care system. We need to think beyond the bricks and mortar of the separation of health and social care, and look to collaboration at a local level between all the players who are vital to our future success.”
