The summit provides Community Equipment professionals a short, sharp forum to discuss the high level, burning issues affecting the delivery of services in the current challenging environment.

Medequip’s Managing Director - David Griffiths sat on the Naidex Community Equipment Summit panel discussing burning issues including:

  • Should the new goal of community equipment services be to encourage people towards self-funding and if so what can be done to help in this regard?
  • Will future increases in Better Care Fund money end up as a myth that never quite materialises?
  • Should training all Stakeholders, within the Adult Social Care & Primary Care system, on what Assistive Technology can do for independence be a central part of every workforce development plan?

Over 70 delegates attended the event.

Other panelists included:

  • Lee Davies – Director – Millbrook Healthcare
  • Julia Skelton – College of Occupational Therapists
  • Roy McNally - Development Manager, Foundations
  • Nathan Downing - Wolverhampton City Council & NDI Consulting
