The impact of COVID-19 on social care services has been profound. FarrPoint joined industry leaders and Bloom Procurement Services to discuss the effects COVID-19 has had on social care so far and the inevitable legacy to be felt for years to come. Our Director, Richard Parkinson, provided input on the importance of technology when responding to the challenges presented by COVID-19. While the crisis is far from over, there are already some clear lessons that can be learned about the role technology has played in helping, and in some cases hindering, the response to COVID-19. These experiences should be harnessed to shape organisations’ use of technology in the post-COVID world.
Richard works with clients across the public and private sectors providing advice on how technology can enhance the delivery of health and social care. Richard advises national organisations on digital strategies, business case development, procurement and implementation management to help them use technology to improve services for citizens and staff.
The panel of experts included:
Adam Crampsie, Managing Director, Bloom Procurement Services
Mike Farren, Customer Development Manager, Bloom Procurement Services
Sue Fadipe, Experienced Consultant & Social Care Senior Manager
Richard Parkinson, Director, FarrPoint
Simon Whitaker, Head of Strategy and Performance, ICS Assessment Services
Kirsty Jordan, Service Director, Peopletoo
