The NHS Confederation is pleased to announce that it will hold a virtual NHS Confed Conference for its members, partners and the wider health and social care system on 15-17 June 2021.
Off the back of the NHS Confederation’s most recent national event in November 2020 for its NHS Reset campaign, it will be looking to build on the success of this and offer a much bigger opportunity for all parts of its membership to reflect on developments during the pandemic and to explore the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
The event will be completely online and will feature a programme of sessions spanning the three days, featuring contributions from NHS England and NHS Improvement and a range of other national and international voices.
Coronavirus continues to place unprecedented pressure on the NHS, as well as on wider society, and the national focus rightly continues to be on reducing the spread of infection, vaccination programme and on helping local services ensure they can provide patients with the care they need.
For these reasons the NHS Confederation, alongside NHS England and NHS Improvement have jointly agreed to defer their inaugural NHS ConfedExpo conference until June 2022, subject to the latest information on coronavirus and Government guidelines.
The NHS Confederation, including its associated networks, is excited to bring its members and the health and social care system together for its virtual conference in June as the single event where all parts of the NHS system in England, including leaders from NHS trusts, integrated care systems, primary care networks and clinical commissioning groups, alongside national bodies and partners, can come together, consider the impact of the pandemic on the NHS and explore the learning for the future of health and care.
Key registration and programme details, including headline speakers, will be revealed soon.
