#homecare18

There is now just one week to go before the National Care at Home & Housing Support Conference, Exhibition & Awards 2018 at the Marriott Hotel in Glasgow.

Here at Scottish Care we are all looking forward to what is set to be a fantastic event, with hundreds of delegates from across the sector coming together for a programme of diverse and challenging contributions from insightful and informed speakers with a variety of experience.

We thought we’d take the opportunity to share a bit more information on our keynote speaker Dr Andrew Mackay.

After qualifying as a General Practitioner in 1993, Dr Mackay has spent two decades working as a GP at St Triduana’s Medical Practice in the capital. He is the Anticipatory Care Planning Lead for Edinburgh and is the Cluster Quality Lead for East Edinburgh.

Ahead of his keynote address on May 18, he said:

“Ensuring that someone being supported at home receives the acute medical care as well as the social care that is most appropriate for them can be challenging in the era of NHS24 and protocol driven emergency services. Anticipatory Care Planning can allow the individual and their family’s voices to be heard, so they are cared for in a manner they would wish for. Having had experience of supporting care homes to achieve this in Edinburgh, I wish to consider how such work could be extended to care at home and housing support services and to explore the importance of partnership working across health and social care services.”

We very much look forward to hearing more from Dr Mackay on May 18.
