Dementia Care Can Provide Relief For NHS


There is no doubt that there are speed bumps in the road for both the NHS and the social care industry. As Brexit continues to loom on the horizon and uncertainty grows, the reveal of unnecessary costs to the NHS through avoidable admissions and usage of GP time from the care home sector shouldn’t come as a surprise but should still be a huge cause for concern. By cutting down the strain on our NHS from this avenue, relief can be granted to other areas that are dealing with the brunt of the problems spreading within the service.

Avoidable admissions to the NHS from the dementia care sector cost the NHS between £300 million and £400 million according to Dementia Care & Nursing Home Expo show partners Alzheimer’s Society, and this help makes up the £4.3 billion annual budget that is spent on dementia care. Whilst only being 3.4% of the NHS budget, any amount of money unnecessarily spent out of the NHS budget is too much.

With a survey done by The London Economic showing that expertly devised care plans can save the NHS £4000 after 9 months through avoiding unnecessary call outs or strain on A&E departments and GP clinics. With 11,300 care homes operating in the UK, that’s a potential saving of £44 million thanks to effective training that results in better care for residents. Training should be the first step for every outstanding care home, and there will be a real emphasis on exceptional training providers at the Dementia Care & Nursing Home Expo in 2019.

The Dementia Care & Nursing Home Expo will be the premier platform for social care business owners to find everything they will need to begin being a part of this drive towards better care, and eventual savings for our NHS. With training being at the heart of this push for better total care, Dementia Care & Nursing Home Expo will be a frontier of exceptional training in all forms, from masterclasses to seminars to exhibitors, leaving no excuse for visitors not to get what they need from the event.

With training providers such as Ash Training, Able Training, Busy Bee, Nyx Training and My Learning Cloud there is every chance for visitors to begin the process of receiving expert and tailored training that will prepare staff for what will be a difficult 2019 for the care sector. Having such a plethora of providers gives the chance for visitors to find the training style right for them, and also gives a chance to show just how much support there is for the growing industry. For those looking for more immediate education, there will be masterclasses providing complimentary training throughout the event, ready for visitors to partake and apply immediately after they return to work.

Everything is CPD accredited at the Dementia Care & Nursing Home Expo, which helps make the speaker line up another excellent form of training for visitors to utilise. With the likes of CQC, Sharon Allen OBE from Skills For Care and Leslie Weare from Reed Recruitment, there is no reason why the Dementia Care & Nursing Home Expo can’t be the place for all social care business owners to kick start their drive to outstanding care and money retention that will be felt throughout the NHS.

There needs to be teamwork from industry to industry if we are to come out of 2019 with sturdier ground beneath our feet than when we entered. Attending trade shows like Dementia Care & Nursing Home Expo are the best place to start finding how to play your part.
