Back to Conferences and Exhibitions Live

November was a busy month as delayed conferences and exhibitions took place, 3 in the month.

The Medequip marketing team firstly exhibited and supported the National Association of Equipment Providers (NAEP) conference held at Chesford Grange, Kenilworth. The conference provides a varied and extensive programme of speakers updating the delegate audience of contract managers and commissioners on the changes in Health and Social Care policy and having a focus on Person Centred Care. Emerging themes included falls prevention, the importance of integrating with community assets for example TLAP and National Voices, and the now published SCIE report A place we can call home: A vision and a roadmap for providing more options for housing with care and support for older people. Over 40 exhibitors included a wide range of equipment manufacturers and service providers. Medequip were delighted to provide sponsorship to the organisers.

Later in the second week of the month Medequip attended and exhibited at the National Commissioning and Contracting Training Conference (NCCTC) at the Hayes Centre, Alfreton. Here the key theme was one of developing markets for the future using prevention first strategies and again referenced personalised care and the need to look at a hybrid model, using elements of the open market, partnerships and co-production.

Finally, Medequip exhibited at the OT Show. Back after a year away this popular exhibition and CPD learning opportunity for occupational therapy professionals provides an ideal opportunity to network and receive feedback from the many prescribers who work both with Medequip and others services to provide care equipment to those who need support. The Medequip exhibition stand this year featured a ‘live-scribe’ who, as part of our engagement, feedback collation and ultimately co-production of service delivery, recorded the thoughts and comments the OT Show delegates communicated to the team on our stand. We spoke to over 500 delegates over the 2 days of the show. The feedback received will now be integrated into our development projects to improve service delivery further in 2022 and beyond.
