Wealdex London 2017 - an overview of the day
Held at the Brunel University Campus in Uxbridge, Wealdex London 2017 set out to educate care professionals as to the opportunities and challenges around prescribing equipment in a cost-effective way, the legal requirements of a risk assessment process, and the deployment of single-handed care packages.
Delivered by renowned speakers Deborah Harrison, Julia Love and Melanie Sturman, the presentations drew on years of practical experience as well as the results of recent research. Our delegates ranged from seasoned loan store managers to newly qualified occupational therapists, all eager to learn of tips and processes that would assist in delivering the best quality care in a resource-limited environment.
Supported by industry colleagues from Felgains and Made2Aid, Wealden Rehab were pleased to show delegates some of the newest concepts and products that could help in delivering this quality of care. Demonstrations of the Legacy, Trekker, Strata, Raz chairs and Roomer S hoists were carried out alongside the Vendlet V5S Repositioning System and the Raizer Emergency Lifting Chair.
Our delegates were rewarded with a prize draw at the end of the afternoon - congratulations to all!
- Christine Smith won 1st prize - "A ticket for a View from The Shard and Afternoon Tea for 2 at the H10 Bar"
- Suzanne Taylor-Collins won 2nd prize for a "Climb and Dine for 2 at The O2"
- Germaine Frazer won 3rd prize of £50 High Street Vouchers
Feedback from the day has been resoundingly positive, and we're looking forward to announcing our next event.
