Private meeting at the Conservative Party Conference

We ran a private breakfast meeting at the Conservative Party Conference this autumn, hosted by the International Longevity Centre-UK and sponsored by Barchester Healthcare, a leading care provider.

The meeting provided an opportunity for a select group of stakeholders to come together in private to discuss how we build a new consensus on care funding, following the publication of the Dilnot report.

It was a highly interactive event with the emphasis on debate, rather than speeches and questions to the panel, as we seek to help move forward the debate on care funding, looking in particular at the role of the private sector in the future of care provision.
