Care Quality Commission chief to speak at Alzheimer's Show

David Behan, chief executive of the Care Quality Commission, will provide a keynote speech at next week's Alzheimer's Show in London.

The event, which is being held at the Royal Horticultural Halls on Friday April 19th and Saturday the 20th, is being launched for carers and professionals who work with people with dementia.

Mr Behan will discuss the needs people with dementia have and the steps his body is taking to ensure they have access to the best care available.

Nigel Ward, founder of the Alzheimer’s Show, said: "There is no one in the country who can match David Behan’s knowledge and commitment to driving forward high national standards of quality, safety and care for all vulnerable people."

A number of other leading experts will speak at the show, including professor Alistair Burns, national clinical director for dementia and Rebecca Wood, chief executive of Alzheimer's Research UK.

Organisations such as Memory Bank, SweetTree and Care UK will also be hosting one-to-one clinics and workshops.
