Leading From The Edge Transforming Our System – Together

The 2019 NICON conference and exhibition is set in the context of the third year of the roll out of Health and Wellbeing 2026 – Delivering Together.

On 16 and 17 May, you are invited to join over 500 health and social care leaders and partners to hear from local and visiting experts and leaders about progress on transformation, merging thinking, and next steps in developing positive change. Join colleagues to keep up to date with key developments and contribute to the ongoing conversations around health and social care. 

Why attend? 

At this year’s NICON conference and exhibition, you will have the opportunity to:

  • understand the vision and strategic context for health and social care in Northern Ireland
  • hear from senior leaders and visiting experts about the latest thinking
  • hear from a range of individuals in our system taking up the collective leadership challenge to drive change in front line services
  • network with over 500 colleagues from across health and social care
  • join a range of practical workshops and have your voice heard
  • visit over 50 exhibitors showcasing a range of helpful products and services
  • build your capacity to be part of the collective leadership community.

In response to what delegates have told us, this year you can expect more opportunities to join parallel sessions. We look forward to welcoming staff, patients, clinicians, politicians, partners and visiting guests as we seek to continue to make change.

Change the nature of the workplace to tackle NHS workforce issues | Peter Molyeux

18 / 3 / 2019 3.38pm

The announcement by the Secretary of State of a raft of measures designed to improve the mental health of NHS staff is an important and welcome one. It is a first step in the NHS making good on the NHS Ten Year Plan's desire to see employers having "a key role to play in supporting their staff to stay well and in work.” Given the higher than average sickness rates in the NHS compared to other public sector organisations, Peter Molyneux, chair of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, explains why it is important that the NHS sets the standard.
