A new report has revealed that a staggering £625m of taxpayers' money could be saved if more appropriate provision was made for people needing home adaptations. The report's authors presented the findings to leading parliamentarians and industry figures in Parliament this morning.
Latest from BHTA's Director General
With Trade Days and the ASCN Conference back to back last week we decided to miss out last weeks Newsletter.
At Trade Days we took a number of new member enquiries which we will be following up over the next few weeks. Many of our members had staff split between this show and Rehacare Dusseldorf but BHTA member stands were very prominent with the logo everywhere in the hall.
BHTA exhibited for the first time at the Association of Stoma Care Nurses Conference Bournemouth in support of our members.
There was a high showing of BHTA members in the conference and Steve Perry and Kevin Hodges were engaging with the stoma care nurses about our Code of Practice and members. Kevin delivered a lecture on “Working in partnership with industry”
We still have a busy time with Care and Dementia and OT Show to come. If your exhibiting or attending either shows come along to the BHTA stands.
