The future is here

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, expand their professional network and debate topical issues.

With the Brexit deal looming and announcement of the NHS Long term plan, on top of existing winter crisis pressures; now is an important time as any to take time out from your busy schedule to focus on the future, reflect on your challenges and hear from healthcare experts from across the UK and beyond. Confed19 provides that opportunity.

This year our conference will focus on the future and this theme will be supported by our new conference strands. Through engaging workshops, keynote speeches, breakout sessions, seminars and panel discussions, the most senior leaders in health and social care will come together to address key challenges and take home practical solutions.

What is new for 2019?

Following delegate feedback from 2018, we have refreshed some popular event features and introduced new ones:

  • Six conference strands themed on key health and social care priorities, that will deliver thought-provoking sessions and practical solutions to help you improve services, work more efficiently and save money.
  • Alongside the popular ‘In conversation with’ and mental health zones, we are introducing new zones that will delve deeper into specific challenges affecting health and social care today.
  • A new social calendar will give you even more opportunities to make new connections and develop existing relationships.

And as you would expect from Confed conference, you will hear renowned healthcare experts share insight and developments from the UK and beyond. Confirmed speakers include Rt.Hon Matt Hancock MP, Professor Eric Topol, NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens and Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham, chief executive of Health and Global Policy Institute in Tokyo, Ryoji Noritake, and Harvard University’s professor of public health David Williams.

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.
