Mutual healthcare conference gives financial boost to Torquay economy

20th June 2011

One of the country’s leading mutual organisations rolls into Torquay for its Conference this week and it’s estimated the arrival of Benenden Healthcare Society could contribute somewhere in the region of £200,000 to the local economy.

More than 400 delegates, nominated from the Society’s extensive UK-wide branch network of 45 branches will debate a wide range of issues relating to the member-owned organisation that was founded in 1905. Those debates will take place at Torquay’s Riviera International Conference Centre on Thursday 23rd and Friday 24thJune.

Propositions that are likely to be debated this year include proposed changes to the Society’s rules and motions on a variety of topics such as asking Society management to investigate the possibility of providing a new service to more than 930,000 Society members.

Paul Keenan, External Affairs Manager at Benenden Healthcare said:

‘Our Conferences are a great opportunity for members to engage with Society management and to come together in order to decide the vision and direction of the organisation.

‘It’s a vindication of the decision of our founder, Charles Garland, to form Benenden Healthcare as a mutual in 1905 that we still have great passion and debate amongst our member delegates over 100 years later. The mutual spirit is as strong as ever.’

This year’s Conference also includes two special guest speakers: Maura Buchanan, former President of the Royal College of Nursing, and Ed Mayo, Secretary General of Co-operatives UK.
