Women in a meeting

NHSPN holds a number of regular meetings and events for members and non-members throughout the year. See below for more details.

Upcoming events

Wednesday 27 September: NHSPN at the UK Health Show 2017

The NHS Partners Network will be working with the UK Health Show this year to highlight the independent sector’s vital role in supporting the NHS. The UK Health Show is the UK’s largest, one-day healthcare event bringing together the whole healthcare marketplace and will be taking place on Wednesday 27 September at Olympia London. On the day, David will be leading a session on how the independent sector is working with the NHS to improve access to community services. David will be joined by Andrew Walton, Executive Chair at Connect Healthcare, as well as representatives from a local CCG to demonstrate the work independent sector providers are doing to support the NHS in developing innovative new models of care, and ensuring that patients have access to high quality community services, in the right place, at the right time.
The event will be a great opportunity for members to meet, share and do business with the UK’s healthcare leaders. For more information please click here
