We attended the BABICM event Case Managing with Curiosity and Creativity: Planning the best personalised care on 03/12/2019. Some great speakers including Sue Peters covering ‘Negotiating the minefield of CHC funding – understanding the process and the framework to achieve optimum outcomes’ and Frances Mayne covering Direct Employment or Agency: A Deputy’s Perspective.
