Scottish Provident is sponsoring this year's Carers National Association conference, which is being held in London on January 23.
The conference will debate a number of issues affecting carers, including planning for change in the longterm care market. Speakers will include health minister John Hutton.
Other senior figures from across the protection sector will also be taking part in debates on the major issues facing the LTC industry, including handling resources, funding provision and insurance as the market changes.
ScotProv head of product marketing John Hay will be addressing the conference giving a general response from the insurance industry to the NHS Plan which followed the royal commission looking at LTC.
Hay says: “Now that the Government provision is clearer, people can plan the funding of accommodation and personal care costs with more certainty to eliminate the risk of assets being unfairly swallowed up.
With insurance more affordable, this is good news not only for consumers but for all those concerned with how we plan for an ageing society.”
