Confed17 has a refreshed full two-day programme that is structured around six conference strands that contain a mix of plenary sessions, panel discussions, debates, seminars and workshops that means you can engage in a variety of different ways to gain new knowledge, insights and learning in the areas of most interest and importance to you.

This year the main stage programme will focus on the following plenary themes:

  • Understanding the implications from Brexit and what is needed to protect NHS services and staff
  • Exploring local campaigning and how to engage the public on NHS transformation
  • Evaluating the future of the localism agenda and the prospects for further health devolution
  • Celebrating the NHS and championing where we lead the world
  • Looking to the future and considering the potential for consumer-led healthcare

 "The solutions to our challenges lie in whole system change, collaboration and a values based approach, delivering for the people we serve not organisational sovereignty. The NHS Confederation annual conference is one of the best places to bring all of the systems together to explore those possibilities."
