Professor Dame June Clark and Professor Joyce Kenkre hosted the evening which saw Welsh Government Care Minister Rebecca Evans AM cover a range current health and social care issues and current proposals in Wales. The Minister said she and the Welsh Government had been very impressed with RESECs input on policy issues in Wales for over a decade and its aims of securing best practice initiatives across the health and social policy sectors.

Professor Dame June Clark expressed best wishes on behalf of everyone to Professor John Wyn Owen, the President of RESEC Cymru, who was indisposed but who had sent his thoughts – and which she shared with everyone.

Dr Vanessa Webb updated members about her work with carers, and then the 25 invited guests drawn from academia and the third and statutory sectors participated in a Q&A session led by Professor Kenke.

Paul Pavia, the Wales RESEC Secretary, was thanked for his great efforts in developing RESEC Cymru and congratulated on his recent election to Monmouthshire Council where he had been entrusted with developing economic issues.

Richard Edwards congratulated Dame Clark and Professor Kenkre on their new roles as Associate Trustees – which recognised their support of RESEC Cymru plus individual contributions in social care & health improvements in Wales and beyond.

Simon Harrison, the UK RESEC Chair, closed the evening by detailing current RESEC activities.
