Confed18: Celebrating the past, shaping the future

The NHS Confederation’s annual conference and exhibition is a unique experience where health and social care leaders can face shared challenges, find practical solutions, celebrate past successes and shape future ones. With this in mind, the event concentrated on workforce, reform and the 70th birthday of the NHS.

These key themes were supported by six focused strands: digital; transformation; integration; efficiency and productivity; workforce and leadership.

Through engaging workshops, keynote speeches, breakout sessions, seminars and panel discussions, the most senior leaders in health and social care came together on 13 and 14 June in Manchester to address key challenges and take home practical solutions.

If you joined us for Confed18, we would like to thank you for attending. For those unable to attend, read our roundups and watch the keynote sessions.

We hope to see you next year in Manchester for Confed19 taking place on Wednesday 19 - Thursday 20 June 2019. Register your interest and we will contact you once bookings open.
