Confed17, our new-look flagship annual conference and exhibition, will be held at the ACC Liverpool on 14 and 15 June, just one week after the General Election. The full two day event will bring together the whole health and social care community, strengthening relationships and showcasing innovative solutions to meet the changing needs of organisations across the NHS and wider health and care sector.

What is new?

Following feedback from last year, the event programme has been revamped into a new two-day format, providing the same value, content, exhibition time and networking as previous years, but requiring less of your time out of the office and money spent on accommodation. Costs for tickets have also been capped at last year’s rates to ensure you continue to get excellent value for money at our events. 

• Refreshed full two day programme
• First ever Communications Conference
• Full day NHS Employers workforce summit 
• New fringe programme

Book your place to take part in challenging healthcare discussions, to ensure your organisation is represented and to hear the latest expert thinking.
