Professional Office Supplies was delighted to support Scottish Care’s annual Care Home Conference at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow last week.
Business Development Director, Graham Connell, and Key Accounts Director, Lesley Findlay, hosted the POS stand on the day.
This year marked the 20th anniversary of the conference, an event which is the largest of its kind in the UK to focus specifically on care home support.
With over 450 delegates in attendance, the conference focused on the significant role care home services play in ensuring individuals are able to remain connected to their communities and the criticality of their involvement in shaping Scotland’s future health and social care system. A number of current challenges were also highlighted and addressed on the day including workforce shortages, Brexit and the future of the National Care Home Contract.
Professional Office Supplies works with a number of care homes as valued clients and attending the conference was a great opportunity for us to gain a further understanding of the industry. POS Key Accounts Director, Lesley Findlay, was in attendance and had this to say:
“I was delighted to represent Professional Office Supplies at this year’s conference, the first year in which we have attended. The event gave us a great insight into the fantastic work done by the staff in the care industry and the ongoing challenges they face to provide high quality care to all who need it. We are always looking to find ways in which we can improve and this event allowed us to gain valuable knowledge of the environment in which our customers in this industry work. We will use this information to further develop the service we provide to these key clients, in turn strengthening our working relationship.”
Business Development Director, Graham Connell, also commented:
“We were delighted to join over 70 other exhibitors at this year’s Care Home Conference. The event gave us the opportunity to engage further with some of our current clients and also gave us the platform to showcase our products and services to potential new clients within the care sector. We had a fantastic response from the delegates we engaged with and look forward to meeting with them in the coming weeks to further discuss their requirements and tailor a solution to meet their needs.”
